To reach the closest driver, select which Beach you would like to be picked up from:
1 St Pete Beach

Free Beach Ride never has a Rate or Fare. We suggest that you Tip your driver just like you would any service provider, based on whatever you think it’s worth for the service. Your generosity is always greatly appreciated!
What does it mean to Travel Further or Outside Your Local Free Area?
What is a SUGGESTED GRATUITY?
Free Beach Ride never has a Rate or Fare. When you travel outside your local area (non-adjacent beaches or off the beach), we will provide you with a Suggested Gratuity. Since our driver’s work for Tips only, the Suggested Gratuity amount assists the guest when determining what to tip for the service. The Suggested Gratuity to travel outside your Local Free Area is approximately $2 per mile, which is generally less than a taxi rate/fare PLUS Gratuity.
Do you take credit cards?
Free Beach Ride drivers do not have a way to process credit cards. We can only accept cash.
What type of vehicles do you have?
Free Beach Ride has a fleet of mini-vans that seat 6-7 people. The vans are all wrapped with information from our Advertising Partners. Please click on the Visit page for more information.
