Easy to find boarding location, captain/tour guide was at ramp to greet. Boat had sunny & shady bench seating to offer. Time went quickly as our guide/captain colorfully described our surroundings & the history of Tampa. The speakers made it easy & clear to hear the guide.

Captain Larry made for an entertaining tour! We loved the tour, and would definitely do another. If you are hesitant based on a few subpar reviews, go. It was relaxing, informative, and entertaining.

What a fun tour! We learned a lot about Tampa's history - even after living here for 8 years. Phil was very knowledgeable and fun. He was also great helping our more mobility challenges family members get on the boat. Would definitely recommend it!

Thought boat would be enclosed. Got rained on most of the trip. Beverages were not offered. Sat at front of the boat, had to standup to see anything. I think it was difficult to get to the boat. Should have had bettr directions. Parking price was ridicule.
