“ Between Knight Island and Little Gasparilla Island, Don Pedro is accessible only by private boat or ferry. Boaters can tie up at the dock on the mangrove-lined bay side of the island. Access the dock via the channel south of the Cape Haze power line crossing, but be sure to idle, as the channel is only 2.5 feet deep. Keep your eyes peeled for endangered species such as West Indian manatees, gopher tortoises, bald eagles and American oystercatchers. With one mile of white sandy beach, enjoy sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling and shelling on Don Pedro's Gulf side. Boat and surf fishing are other favorite pastimes of visitors to the 230-acre park.

“ This place is great!!!! You take a Water Taxi from in back of Leverocks Restaurant to Knight Island. It takes about 15 min. to get over to the island....I think it's $6.00 per person/round trip. CASH ONLY!!!! Restaurant food and drink and atmosphere is great. I would not go on a night when another event is happening....for example, a wedding or corporate event....slows service down. Make reservations to guarantee a spot on the boat. We prefer Rum Bay to Leverocks restaurant.”
