Private Two Hour Yacht Charter in Tampa Bay

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Departing from the Harborside Marina in downtown St Petersburg, Florida, guests will have great views of the city skyline while cruising north to Snell Isle and the historic Old Northeast. The yacht cruises into protected coves where manatees and dolphins are often seen in their natural habitat. From there, the vessel cruises to the North Vinoy basin, giving guests the opportunity to take photos with the historic Vinoy Hotel in the background. The vessel continues to the South Vinoy basin, giving guests the opportunity to see the world-famous Salvador Dali museum from the water (another great photo opportunity). Continuing south, the vessel enters the Bayboro Harbour, home to the United States Coast Guard Sector Saint Petersburg and the University of South Florida. As the vessel cruises this basin, guests may have the opportunity to see celebrity-owned mega-yachts up close (another photo opp). 

    The route hugs the coastline so guests will always have a view of land. This route may change depending on weather conditions. 

    Guests are encouraged to pack a picnic lunch or dinner and bring their own beverages aboard (including alcohol). Glass bottles and smoking are prohibited onboard.

    The ride was great, we really enjoyed ourselves. The crew staff were very nice. The two hours went by fast. We were able to see dolphins while cruising around. We chose 12-2pm and I enjoyed every minute. It is worth the $$$.
