There is a saying here: “When you’re on Anna Maria Island, you don’t go to the beach . . . because on Anna Maria Island you’re already on the beach.” With Gulf temperatures averaging 84 degrees and 360 days of sunshine per year, the surrounding waters of AMI are known as “the nursery” because of the many dolphins that raise their young here. Surrounded by water and interlaced with canals, this area hosts many amazing sea creatures, including Loggerhead Turtles, Manatees and dolphins. Loggerhead Turtles are a protected species. A Turtle Watch group of wonderful folks search the beaches for nests and protect those nests until the eggs hatch (it is illegal for anyone to tamper with the nests). Manatees are also protected here in Florida – They are commonly seen in the summer when they leave their winter-warm waters and migrate south.
