This sunset tour was absolutely AWESOME!! The boat was clean and comfortable. The crew was so friendly and encouraged everyone to enjoy and have fun. The views were spectacular! There is nothing better than cruising on the water and watching the sun go down over sparkling water views. The bright yellow of the sun with pink sky among the clouds was amazing. The music and dancing topped off this fun trip! This tour is a must for everyone!!!

We have been coming to the Palmetto area for 10 years but have never taken this cruise until now. My children wanted to give it to their mom for Mother's Day. What a super surprise it was! Our cruise was on 4/29/21 and the sunset was spectacular. The crew and 'cruise hostess' were fantastic offering lots of information as we cruised out to the gulf. After the super sunset it was more fun with games, music and for those of us daring enough dancing. One of the highlights was a stop at a local park along the Manatee River to give the kids light up bracelets!!

There is no better place to celebrate the sunset than aboard Captain Tom's Riverside Tour pontoon boat. This is our second event with Captain Tom, and this one was just as enjoyable as our first trip, maybe even better. From the color commentary by first mate, Jennifer, to personal chatter with the Captain, the evening aboard is an amazing respite from the challenges of everyday life. Don't miss it, whether you are a local, or visiting the Gulf Coast...the water, the manatees, the dolphins, the views, and the chance to escape the world without leaving home.

Went on a sunset cruise with Captain Tom and First Mate Jennifer. Outstanding boat, beautiful scenery. They pointed out interesting things, but didn‘t yak the whole time, so you could have conversations with other passengers. The sunset was striking of course, as was the lit- up Skyway Bridge. Jennifer also did magic tricks! Thank you for a great time.

Took the 2 hour early morning, cooler cruise and it was great. The captain and guide were fantastic, very friendly and comfortable to hang out with for the morning. We toured around the river and into the bay and saw different islands, some dolphins, the skyway bridge, a sandbar, lots of birds and all the big waterfront homes. The boat is super comfortable, the seats are padded and positionable and there is lots of space. Very easy parking at the marina and there is a golf cart shuttle if you need assistance getting from the parking lot down to where the boats are. Highly recommend this for a few hour escape. Go enjoy!
