Casey Key / Osprey / Nokomis

The narrow island of Casey Key is one of Sarasota's hidden gems, an isolated and exclusive enclave just off the sleepy mainland town of Nokomis.

Between the cities of Sarasota and Venice lie a handful of communities and enclaves worth exploring. On the mainland are Osprey and Nokomis, home to Oscar Scherer State Park, Historic Spanish Point and a popular 10-mile paved biking pathway called the Legacy Trail. Venture off the mainland to Casey Key. Stay at one of the beach condos and seaside nooks nearby the bustling Nokomis Beach, Sarasota County's oldest public beach.

Replica Boat - This is a replica of a boat built on our site by Frank Guptill in 1901. Actually it was an older sailboat that he de-masted and installed what is probably the first engine in a power boat in Sarasota and the Webb's named her Magic. The Magic was destroyed in the hurricane of 1921. In 2006 volunteers rebuilt her based upon photos, and we take people out almost every day.
