Perhaps the best activities are the ones that you can truly be done together and not simply done besides one another. In order to get the most out of your trip, try some of the best couple activities in Anna Maria Island.


Kayaking in Anna Maria Island is a time-honored tradition. For added romance (and a little teamwork), consider a two-person kayak rental. You and your significant other can spend the day together exploring Florida while taking in the abundance of fauna and wildlife. For a truly unforgettable experience, reserve a sunset kayak tour for you and other half. Cozy up in your two-person kayak and watch as the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico.

Alternatively, consider a kayak fishing charter with your partner as a way to bond. It’s truly one of the best ways to explore Florida’s nooks and crannies while experiencing the fishy side of Florida! Companies such as Happy Paddler will provide everything you may need including the kayak, fishing rods, bait, and safety gear. Simply show up as a couple and get ready for an exciting day!


Considered by many to be the fastest growing watersport, paddleboarding has blossomed in Anna Maria Island as a universal activity for all. You have the opportunity to explore the Floridian waterways with your significant other while creating lifelong memories. Unlike kayaks, paddleboards can be utilized as makeshift surfboards for small waves out in the Gulf of Mexico. Whatever your preference may be, paddleboarding in Anna Maria Island has become a must-do couple activity.

Wildlife Cruises

Wildlife cruises in Anna Maria Island are a memorable bonding experience for any couple looking for an outdoor adventure. These cruises are a great way to not only explore the ecosystem in and around Florida but give couples an amazing opportunity to experience the wildlife as well. On any number of wildlife cruises, couples can see a number of birds, crabs, manatees, and even the occasional dolphin. Cozy up with your significant other and enjoy all that nature has to offer.

Sunset Cruise

Nothing says romance quite like a sunset. That’s why sunset cruises in Anna Maria Island have consistently been rated as one of the best activities for couples. Sail out into the Gulf of Mexico and partake in one of the best sunsets on the planet. This can be a perfect activity to end your wonderful day of bonding.

Many sunset cruise charters will allow passengers to bring some snacks and even alcohol on the ride to make It a truly enjoyable experience. Grab a bottle of yours and your partner’s favorite drink, snacks, and take in the truly gorgeous hues in the sky over the Gulf of Mexico.
