About Island Beach Monkeys
Island Beach Monkeys was established in 2013 to offer an alternative to walking, driving, or taking the trolley. Modeled on similar services in St. Pete and Siesta Key, Island Beach Monkeys offers an Eco-friendly alternative to tourists and residents alike. In addition, Island Beach Monkeys offers an alternative for those without drivers' licenses, for folks with physical disabilities, and for visitors unfamiliar with our roadways.
The Island Trolley is a fantastic resource, however, it can be crowded, it does not always keep a regular schedule, and it stops running at a very early hour. Additionally, the trolley does not serve all parts of the island, and many folks have difficulty walking to and from the nearest trolley stop. Island Beach Monkeys addresses the trolley's limitations by providing an affordable alternative. Our regular transportation services are free, although we do encourage tipping our drivers for the services they perform. Our special event pricing is very reasonable as well.
Island Beach Monkeys also promotes Island Events and Island Businesses. We partner with Special Events Coordinators, local attraction operators, and restauranteurs. Our drivers can provide individuals with suggestions as to what to do, where to eat, etc. We offer advertising to carefully vetted businesses on both our carts and on our vehicles. We live, work, and play on Anna Maria Island, so we can help you live, work, and play here too.
We have recently expanded our fleet, to include Golf Carts, Mini-Buses, and SUVs. Because of this, we have expanded our transportation services to include most of Tampa Bay and Sarasota-Bradenton. We are no longer limited to transporting just on Anna Maria Island. We provide a great alternative to taxi-cabs when you need a ride to or from town.
