We got to see Tampa from a different perspective and it was very relaxing. There were couple places we could dock at to get... More

We are close to total boating novices and not spring chickens. But a short orientation and we were on our way. Very patient staff member. We went in late afternoon meaning we went out in daylight and returned after dark. Wonderful way to see Tampa. Total blast. You gotta do this!

My wife and I grabbed a picnic lunch at the grocery store up the street and set out in the eboats electric boat. The staff was awesome and made sure I was comfortable driving the boat and with the area before we left. The views are beautiful and there are many restaurants and bars to stop along the way. We...

Hard to add to the great reviews, but we also had a fun time. Took 8 people out, combination of locals and folks from out-of-town. Brought some wine and food with us. Really nice, peaceful way to see the City. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Highly recommend.

Perfect way to hang out on the water in Tampa - even in December. Beautiful holiday lights on all the bridges. The eboat is so quiet, it provides a nice peaceful ride so everyone can join in the conversation. Boat was very comfortable for our 9 adults - and could easily accommodate 12. Nice center table for food and drinks.... More

Took my family on a relaxing enjoyable 2 hour boat ride. Boats are electric so no fumes & had an iphone hookup for tunes. Would book again!

great electric boat to go up the hills borough river and cruise by St. jetters burg on Davis island. Easy to navigate and just fun to see homes on water.

I took my Mum and Dad (77) for an hours ride. We brought a variety of picnic foods and drinks and had the loveliest of times. A quiet gentle saunter up the river listening to classical music from ipod plugged into speaker system. A table, comfy seats, non demanding speed (max 7mph) made for a beautiful evening.

Captain Shannon was a pleasure and extremely helpful to our party! If you have the opportunity rent an eboat or even better take out that beautiful Catameran for a sunset!
