A celebrated aspect of the Gulfstream boating life is having the luxury to anchor at some of the top sandbars in Florida. It feels like a right of passage when you post up in tropical waters and doze off to the sound of the sea lapping against the boat. Our Members have a host of sandbars in Florida to choose from as they’re exploring around their local clubs!

Here are some of our favorite snorkeling locations:
