This is a must stop if you live in or visit Tampa. I promise you it is well worth your time. It will cruise you through downtown Tampa and you can choose where you want to go first. You will love it. Completely unique.

The captain was very informative. His sidekick, the first mate?, was goofy (read: strange). The boat was dumpy. I felt it was an overpriced waste of time.

We had a pleasant and educational trip and saw our city from a different perspective. We also booked a private tour and were able to bring some snacks on board. Would recommend this for a novelty experience.
