Immerse yourself into Guy Harvey Outpost in St. Petersburg for fun and food!
We at OFF On The Go are huge fans of Dr. Guy Harvey who uses his paintings to bring awareness to marine life! I had the chance to check out the Guy Harvey Outpost in St. Petersburg, Florida and wanted to share my experiences with you all! Let’s take a dive into a total gem resort that offers you everything you need while you’re in St. Pete Beach!
Guy Harvey Outpost is located on the waterfront of St. Pete Beach and offers a ton of amenities giving you the relaxation you need for your vacation. The Outpost has everything you need from beautiful rooms, restaurants, shopping, attractions, and more to make this resort a must do for my family when we want to escape the everyday stresses of life!
The rooms at the Guy Harvey Outpost are luxurious, spacious, and have the setup that I love in beach resorts. Unlike some resorts, the rooms at the outpost are reversed where you walk into the bedroom instead of the living space to allow the seating and entertaining spaces to be facing the beach! There is nothing like sitting in the living room with the large doors open listening to the sounds of the beach while spending time with your family!
Guy Harvey decorations and paintings are located throughout the entire resort which I love! From the paintings on the walls to the beautiful bed runner that really brought the beach into each and every room of the resort! For those who want to really maximize your time at the resort, there are efficiency appliances located in your place so you can make some food while you are there!
Looking for food while at Guy Harvey Outpost? This resort has you covered! From beachfront bars, grab and go food choices, to sit down restaurants the outpost has exactly what you are looking for. We really enjoyed grabbing a drink at the beachfront bar and then heading to a nice dinner at RumFish Grill which is located right in front of the resort! RumFish Grill also has some amazing bars for you to enjoy! Reservations are recommended however you can also get the entire menu at the bar as well so keep that in mind!
Wanting food but not wanting to leave your room after a day full of activity at the beach? No worries, Guy Harvey Outpost has you covered with in-room dining. The resort has a ton of family-friendly food to make sure you and your family can fill your bellies while relaxing!

Make sure if you want to participate in the touch tank to see the times they do this activity and get there early as many families enjoy this activity!
Looking for a once in a lifetime activity while you’re at Guy Harvey Outpost? Check out the Swim With The Fishes Program at RumFish Grill. During this program, you can get into and swim with the fish in the 33,500-gallon tank at RumFish Grill. The tank was made and featured on the Animal Planet hit show Tanked! The experience changed my life and is one of my favorite programs that I have ever participated in! Make sure you check out my experience in the link here!
What resort would there be without shopping? Most resorts have basic needs items, stuff for the beach, and t-shirts that have to do with the area. With a name like Guy Harvey Outpost, the resort has a ton more that are presented by Guy Harvey himself! The resort has one of the largest selection of Guy Harvey merchandise that I have seen in the area. From shirts, dresses, house items and even items for your pets!!! I am a big supporter of Guy Harvey merchandise anyway due to the fact that a percentage of what you buy goes to the Guy Harvey Funds that participate in research in marine life!
Overall, Guy Harvey Outpost has everything you need for the ENTIRE family to have a great time! If you’re looking for a family-friendly resort to keep you busy and allow you to relax then make sure you check out Guy Harvey Outpost!
