John’s Pass Village & Boardwalk

Madeira Beach, Florida
In 1848, a pirate named John LeVeque retired from pirating and was headed to his hideout on what is now Madeira Beach when he ran into a hurricane. The next morning, he realized his island had been cut in two by the storm and his buried treasure was gone forever. However there was a new pass between The Gulf of Mexico and the intracoastal waterway. John LeVique was the first person to ever sail through what is now known as John’s Pass.
Today, hundreds of boats use John’s Pass to access the Gulf of Mexico every day. And thousands of tourists visit John’s Pass Village and Boardwalk. John’s Pass Village is a piece of Old Florida updated for the 21st century.
Motorcoach tour passengers who stroll the 1,100-foot boardwalk along the intracoastal waterway will find plenty to do. More than 100 merchants populate the village, with unique retail shopping and a wide variety of restaurants. The boardwalk also provides not only great views of the water but plenty of access. The beach, individual and group cruises, personal watercraft and more are available just steps away.
John’s Pass Village has more to eat, drink, see and do than anywhere on the Gulf Beaches. When bus passengers are ready to take a break from the beach, they can dine dockside, shop for souvenirs, people-watch, bird-watch, even dolphin watch. Grab a cocktail and watch the sunset from a 70-foot long bar. With so much to do, be careful – your group’s visit could turn into a full day of fun.
John’s Pass shops specialize in all things Florida. Bus passengers will find island apparel, surf shops, coastal art, homemade ice cream, craft beer, local wine, even mini donuts.
Every conceivable type of beach and water activity is available at John’s Pass Village. Tour passengers can rent a jet ski, go parasailing, take a cruise to see dolphins and the sunset, charter a sailboat or fishing boat, ride a high-powered racing boat or a take a cruise on a pirate ship. And it’s all right across the street from the famous white sand beach.
The annual John’s Pass Seafood & Music Festival is a one-of-a-kind experience. It’s the largest festival in Florida, featuring non-stop music, amazing seafood and now a family friendly Kid Zone on the beach. And for 35 years in a row, it’s been free. For more information, visit online at
