We spent our honeymoon in St. Pete Beach in October 2022 and knew we wanted to book a sunset cruise. I had researched a bunch of different cruises in the area but Allen's Aquatic Adventures was the only one I found that was private for just us 2, easily accessible from our condo and a great price! We had so much fun on our cruise and Capt Allen was super helpful with local restaurant recommendations and things to do in the area itself. I would absolutely recommend Capt Allen as your guide for a romantic sunset cruise or any type of service he offers!

FUN! FUN! FUN! Our 4 hour trip with Captain Allen was fun filled and relaxing. Our teenage girls both say it was the favorite part of our trip! For anyone planning trip soon, you may read or hear about the red tide. There were warnings of this issue the week we arrived. Captain Allen was available leading up to our boat trip and had excellent communication back and forth by text. Your safety is definitely his priority. He was able to easily navigate us to areas where this was not an issue as this was only a problem in certain patches of the ocean in which he had already been monitoring the days prior. I would not let this deter you from enjoying this experience if this is something you were hoping to do.

I did alot of research and while there are many boats that can take you around to various places in and around St. Pete's and Tampa, they don't already incorporate all the water sports. We did wakeboarding, tubing and went looking for dolphins. The boat ride was smooth and super relaxing. For a family who had all never tried wake boarding before, Captain Allen was a great instructor. He was very patient and encouraging. I think that Captain Allen's gift is that this is something that he loves to do.

I would have no hesitation in recommending booking a boat trip with Allen in the future and we will definitely recommend him to any friends and family that travel in the area. A perfect highlight to a family vacation!!!

My wife and our 12 and 14 year-old boys are on Spring Break in St. Pete Beach. We booked about a week ahead for this incredible sunset boat ride in the waters of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Captain Allen was incredibly friendly and very informative about the history of the area. The boat was very cool and quite comfortable, and we loved the speed across the waters. He played a great playlist of music of our choosing too.

Really great experience. Highly, highly recommend!

We booked an afternoon excursion based off the reviews we read. Captain Allen did not disappoint! We had a fantastic day! He took us to find seashells and sand dollars, we went tubing and he spotted dolphins on the way back and patiently waited to find them so we could see them. They swam right next to the boat. We had a range of ages from 6 to 19 with the kids plus me and my mother. Every one of us had fun. Even my 6 year old wanted to try tubing and Captain Allen promised to drive “little girl slow” at her request so she wouldn’t be scared. She loved it! We highly recommend Allen’s Aquatic Adventures!

Our boating adventure was the highlight of our vacation! Captain Allen asked what we wanted to do and did it. We spent time on Shell Key Island and he took us to go find dolphins. We even saw a couple huge Spotted Eagle Rays that swam under the boat. On the boat he asked what music we liked and jammed my husband’s favorite music. Our teen son absolutely loved the fast boat ride. It is very obvious that Captain Allen loves what he does and had as much fun as we did. Thank you for the great memories! Hope to see you again next time we’re here.

Would recommend and will do it again! Great way to enjoy a boat without having to worry about driving it. Capt Allen is very proficient and knows the water like the back of his hand. He even played Disney princess music for my girls and found sand dollars for them at the island. Book this-you wont regret it!

Booked a 2 hour adventure for my daughter's birthday with Allen and I'm glad I did. Allen definitely went above and beyond. Not only is he super friendly and knowledgeable but he is also very helpful. My mother has difficulty with her balance and not only did he help her onto the boat but he was super helpful with getting her off. I couldn't have asked for a better adventure overall. Definitely would recommend and if ever the time comes, I would book with him again!!!

I can't say enough about Allen and his wonderful service! My husband had not water skied in 20+ years, and Allen was patient in allowing him to fulfill his dream of trying to do do again! Although the weather was inclement Allen made the best of our time by taking us on a guided tour of Egmont Key and the lighthouse and abandoned Fort there. He even took pictures for us after our batteries died and forwarded to us after the trip! His communication was prompt, clear and personal. I would highly recommend him for any water sport or just a day on the water in the St. Pete area. His services are highly personalized to your desires and therefore you won't be disappointed!

Thank you so much Allen for an amazing afternoon out on the water! We are a family of 4 with 2 boys ages 10 and 11. We first went out to Shell Island for a quick stop walking on the beach and looking for shells. Next our sons got to try out knee-boarding... and thanks to Allen's instructions they both were very quickly on the board and enjoying their time! Wakeboarding for our 11 year old adventurer came next and again he was up and on the board in no time. Finally the much anticipated tubing which was an absolute blast!! So much fun! I highly recommend booking this - it was the highlight of our trip.

What a fantastic business! I heard about Allen's Aquatic Adventures through a friend and decided to book a 4 hour wakeboarding and eggmont key excursion for my fiancé's birthday. The entire day was one for the books! We went with 6 people (the max) and 4 out of those 6 people wanted to wakeboard. During our time we were able to each try multiple attempts twice. While I only got up quick and fell over at best, the guys were pros by the end of the day. We then jetted over to eggmont to hang in the water and have a couple white claws. All in with tax, gas and tip the total came to $100/person which I would happily spend over and over again to have the kind of fun we had today! Captain Allen was so nice and patient with us learning to wakeboard. We will definitely be frequent repeat customers.
