Bay Vista Park is located at the opposite end of Pinellas Point from Maximo Park and O'Neill's Marina at the corner of 4th St. and Pinellas Point Drive South. Bay Vista affords boaters two ramps with a nice incline to service deeper draft boats and a near straight shot to the skyway.

There are 12 parking spots at the park designated for vehicles with trailers and other park visitors are pretty good about leaving them free for the local boaters.


The ramps are well maintained and there is rarely a wait to get in and out though there is the occasional fisherman on the dock or ramp wall that you have to work around. The fisherman are very accustomed to boats coming in and out so I've never seen an issue as they are generally very flexible and accommodating.


Being an open water ramp it does make sense to calculate the wind before selecting a ramp, and if you're putting in alone to take the time to put the bumpers out. The concrete walls can be very unforgiving on a fiberglass hull. The other nuisance that goes along with an open water ramp is the collection of seaweed on the paved surface. It makes good sense to clear the debris before putting in or taking out if you're not in a four wheel drive vehicle. Seaweed.... slippery when wet. (The second image below looks like someone was spinning this morning at low tide)

 

Heading out from Bay Vista be mindful of the channel markers as there are shallow grass flats on both sides of the channel. A good place to get some bait on the way out if you're familiar with them, and a good place to get stuck if you're not.
