About John’s Pass, Florida

A hurricane struct Florida on September 27, 1848 sweeping out a new passthrough from the Gulf of Mexico to the intercostal. John Levique, a pirate, was the first person to sail through the newly formed pass, naming it John’s Pass. Nowadays this quaint turn-of-the-century fishing is Pinellas County, Florida’s #1 tourist attraction. Over one hundred merchants inhabit the Village with unique retail shopping, a variety of restaurants, the local fishing fleet, dolphin watching and sunset tours,  as well as parasailing and jet skiing.
