About Waterline Villas & Marina

A legacy defined by an emotional connection between our location and nautical orientation. Anna Maria Island is an experience of history and heritage with crystal clear water, miles of white sandy beaches, and genuine relaxation. Where time slows to a crawl and life becomes less complex. Laid-back. Simple. Crossing over a bridge from the mainland, one leaves the burden of everyday worries for a more balanced state of being. Waterline is “the level reached by water, visible as a line on a boat, beach or bank.” It is the line where two things come together and exist harmoniously in the same space. For us, it’s a genuine connection and experience that’s shared by residents and visitors alike. Waterline signifies you are no longer on hectic, real-world time. You are on island vacation time. Embodying the spirit of Anna Maria Island, Waterline builds on the Old Florida heritage, while offering new experiences and distinct amenities in a modern resort. It’s where you belong.

Waterline Defined

Samuel Plimsoll, a British politician and social reformer who dedicated himself to achieving greater safety for seamen and whose name has been given to a line on the side of a boat, indicating the maximum depth to which that boat may be legally loaded. The “Plimsoll mark” or waterline is an international boat marker that is still in use today. In the late 1800s, it became common practice to load large amounts of cargo onto ships to try and make more money. So when Samuel Plimsoll boarded his ship sailing from London to Redcar, his overloaded ship became caught in a treacherous North Sea storm, its imbalance almost costing him his life. When he returned, he created the life-saving Plimsoll line used by mariners around the world.
