Four of us took the Island Ferry pontoon boat out of the marina in downtown St. Petersburg. We were the only ones booked for that time, so we had the boat to ourselves with a "private" tour from Sebastian. Both he and Susan were friendly and well informed about the area and the wildlife we were lucky enough to see. While still in the harbour area, a family of 6 or 7 manatees entertained us for about 10 minutes right beside the boat, rolling around in the water and smacking their tails as they played. Although we also saw some dolphins on the tour, these gentle creatures and their funny antics were the highlight of our day. The boat is indeed like a floating limousine and we were impressed by how sparkling clean it was -- pride of ownership! We highly recommend taking a relaxing tour on this beautiful boat!
