Perfect for a few hours in an afternoon or going to one of the restaurants on the river. The boats are not very powerful but are good for the river and easy to handle. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Brief orientation Fine for inexperienced drivers. If you are looking to go far or out into the open bay, this... More

We rented for 4 hours so we could stop and eat while out as well as watch the sunset. It was even better than We expected. Easy to drive and just beautiful views of homes, city skyline and sunset. We packed a cooler along with a bag of snacks and then stopped at Ricks for some great food.

Great concept and a great visit! They took great care of us and the boat was immaculate with some nice homey touches. What a great concept for those who do not own a boat and don't go boating a lot. A great time on the water with an easily navigable boat that had TONS of room. Crossed this off my... More

We've done a lot of team buildings for work and this one was by far my favorite. We were on the water for 2.5 hrs. We brought food and drinks and had a DJ . . . (pandora) that connected to the boats speakers. We had so much fun; eating, drinking, singing, dancing, watching the sun set! It was great.... More

We had so much fun cruising around the bay! Very easy to learn with map included to know where to go. We went out for a few hours before we headed to the airport to fly home and was a perfect way to end our trip. Definitely recommend!

So far we've done this twice with out of town guests and everyone loved it. Each time we've done a 2 hour trip. We pack cheese, crackers, fruit etc. and munch up and down the river. 2 hours is just perfect. 1st boat was entirely covered, 2nd boat had a platform with 2 lawn chairs toward the back with full...

We rented the boat for 1 hour to spend some time cruising around the Tampa Bay area. Keith was very helpful and gave us an easy to follow overview of how to operate the boat. The boat itself was very comfortable and clean with nice touches such as decorative cushions and real flowers in the table centerpiece. We were only... More
