About The Clearwater Harbor

About Clearwater Harbor, FL

Clearwater Harbor is a saltwater bay located in Pinellas County, Florida. With a surface area of 9,953 acres, it is surrounded by the cities of Clearwater Beach and Clearwater. Both a popular tourist destination and a favorite stop for boaters and anglers, these cities thrive on the abundant white-sand beaches, high-end resorts, marina facilities, and productive fishing spots scattered in and around Clearwater Harbor.

Clearwater Harbor is connected to the Gulf of Mexico via the Clearwater Pass, a functional 8.5-foot deep inlet that provides access to the Gulf of Mexico from the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW). Historically called ‘Little Pass’, the inlet is said to have been formed by natural occurrences in 1848, and consequently widened by manmade processes for easier navigation. A girder bridge named Sand Key Bridge crosses the Clearwater Pass, connecting Clearwater in the north and Belleair Beach in the south.
