Details of Anclote Key Trip - May 26

Thursday evening, May 26- Anclote Key Trip - another joint club outing - $ 40 per person. 
Same trip as the recent event. Thursday, May 26, 2016 -  Anclote Key Trip – cost includes meal and non-alcoholic beverages.


This trip is open to everyone and invites have been made to the SunCoast Naturist Club, Sanibel Naturist Club, Nautical Nudist Club and Single Nudists of Tampa Bay Yahoo group.

Event Date: Thursday evening, May 26, 2016.

Event Times: The pontoon boat will depart the dock promptly at 5:00 p.m. Please arrive at least 30 to 40 minutes prior to departure time to allow time for boarding and transfer of personal items. The boat will return to the dock sometime after 10:30 p.m. but before 1:00 a.m. It takes approximately an hour to get from the boat dock to Anclote Key. 

Where: Anclote Key (extra-large sandbar) located off of New Port Richey, Florida. The “Key” is part of the state park system but is managed by friends at SOS (Save Our Sandbar). Even though this sandbar is not designated for nudist, it is not monitored and going nude on the key during the weekday evenings has not been a problem for years. Please note, it is not recommend to run around nude on weekends when the Key is full of families but Island Paradise Charters (Pontoon Boat) has been going out to the Key on a fairly regular basis for nude cruise/dinner/fires during the week without problems. Please note, there is a remote chance when we first arrive at the Key, non-nudist boats may be present so we may need to delay being nude but typically the sandbar is nudist friendly once early evening arrives so plenty of nude time will be available. This is a really fun outing and we encourage everyone to attend. 

Cost: $40.00 per person ($80.00 per couple) which includes boat ride out and back to Anclote Key, a freshly cooked dinner (on the boats outdoor grill) and served on the beach, plenty of non-alcoholic drinks (soda and water), a camp fire on the beach and music for dancing (on the boat and on the beach). You can bring a small cooler full of your own alcoholic drinks. 

Meal: Dinner will consist of Teryaki honey glazed chicken, barbeque chicken, fresh pulled pork, seasoned smoke sausage, Island Slaw, Potato Salad, water and soft drinks. Visit the Island ofParadise website:
