Jon was our host and I could not say how much we enjoyed his service. I wanted a more intimate setting for just me and my wife rather than doing a group tour. So happy we found this place! Jon not only accommodated and worked with us to reschedule due to inclement weather, his communication was stellar and graciously even re booked us so we could watch the sunset overlooking a sea of dolphins in the bay for my wife’s birthday! Life is all about experiences and I couldn’t recommend Jon enough for an experience that’ll give memories that’ll last forever!! Will definitely be using St Pete Boat Tours again!! Thank you!

This was my second time going out on a sunset cruise with St. Pete Boat Tours and it was just as beautiful as I remembered it was from the first trip. Captain Ken and his wife Isela were fabulous hosts to my friends and I, providing us a brief history of St. Pete and the development of its waterfront over the years. We saw dolphins (and a baby dolphin) during the cruise and took in a gorgeous sunset over the skyline of St. Pete. I highly recommend booking with this tour company if you are visiting from out of town, or even if you are a local like me. It's a beautiful way to spend an evening with those special to you!

We went with Captain Dave on the Sunset Cruise. It was so beautiful to see the colors reflecting on the water and the city. He was very knowledgeable and funny and ensured that my family could see dolphins. I had my baby with me and Captain Dave made me I feel very secure having him on a boat. I will hire this company again next time family in town.

Fuimos con El Capitan Dave en un tour para ver el atardecer. Ver el reflejo del sol sobre el agua y la ciudad fue genial. Dave sabe muchísimo y es muy divertido. Se aseguró que mi familia pudiera ver delfines. Lleve a mi bebé conmigo y Dave me hizo segura de llevarlo en el bote. Volveré a contratarlos de fijo la próxima vez que venga a visitar mi familia.

This was such an amazing part of our family vaca and all, including picky teens, agreed it was one of the biggest highlights of the week. Captain Aaron is very knowledgeable about the area and took us to private beaches where we could explore and relax. We enjoyed hearing his educational tidbits about the eco system throughout the trip. He clearly loves the sea! Bonus we got to see dolphins up close, playing in the boats wake :) We highly recommend this adventure

Impeccable service from the very first email I sent! Our family was planning a short vacation in St. Petersburg and was looking for some place special to watch the 4th of July fireworks. We searched boat tours in St Pete and came across St. Petersburg Boat Tours. Jackpot!!! Booked a sunset tour for the 4th and they were more than accommodating in staying out just a little longer to allow us to view the fireworks from the water! Dave(Captain) and his Mate did a great job during our boat tour. Sharing details, history and points of interest in and around the bay area. Highly recommended! Can't wait to book again with St Pete Boat Tours in the future!

We had an amazing time ! The first night we booked our tour about 10 minutes in Captain Dave made the call to reschedule due to weather and we were more than ok with his decision and agreed it was best . I wanted to mention this because Dave was pretty great in those 10 minutes. He was funny and educational in the short amount of time our family spent with him . On Thursday we had Chuck who was also very informative on our trip, he also had a great personality. Our cruise was beautiful , Chuck was more than willing to take a moment and grab some family pictures for us . He brought a Bluetooth speaker so we could have some music on our cruise also . They did have a cooler with ice and bottles of water they also let you know before hand that you can bring drinks and snacks. The sunset Cruise was beautiful, fun and educational and we would most definitely use this company again if we come back to visit . We had 5 in our group and we all agree it was easily a 5 star review for them . Our family would like to thank you for making sure our Sunset Cruise was a great memorable experience( so thank you)

Captain Dave is masterful at finding the right places for viewing wildlife, sunsets, and famous landmarks. His boat is clean with a cooler full of ice for your drinks. Dave has expert knowledge of the area if you want a guided tour. Or, he can just drive the boat while you enjoy a peaceful ride. Well worth the $.

We just came back from a great private dolphin tour with Captain Aaron! He was really knowledgeable sharing great information about the dolphins in the area. We learned a lot. Our sons (15 and 13) were completely captivated. I didn’t hear anything about Roblox or Fortnite once during our 2 hour tour and the kids can’t get the smiles off their faces. Thanks Captain Aaron!! We will definitely request you as our captain again!

Captain Aaron was more than impressive! I highly recommend requesting him. We experienced more of the St. Petersburg area than we ever expected and he was very accommodating. If interested, there are great spots to cool off, so feel free to wear your bathing suits. His knowledge of the ocean surroundings and marine life made our experience that much better! Five stars!

We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon with St Pete Boat Tours. It was a spur of the moment idea and we had the great fortune that they had a spot available. We had the pleasure of meeting Ken, the owner, at the boat before the trip. Captain Dave took us our for a mid afternoon cruise and he was awesome. He filled us in on the history of the area around the bay as we toured around. The boat itself was very, very nice and super comfortable. I would highly recommend St Pete Boat Tours to anyone.
