Needs a better boat 🚣‍♀️

Our guide was wonderful - knowledgeable & welcoming. Unfortunately the boat is not designed for good views. We sat in the front and the hull prevented us from seeing well - our children had to stand up. Also, the description stated 15 people per trip for safety. - we had close to 20. We also had a party of four that had too much to drink. Our guide handled them the best he could, but they were very disruptive. It would have been nice if he had denied them from boarding.

Tampa Cruise

We enjoyed the cruise very much and the commentary was full of interesting information. We are visitors to Tampa and did not know any of the history of the area. Unfortunately, we had trouble getting to the dock due to construction on the streets nearby. My GPS was unable to give us a different route, so we parked in a lot that we probably did not belong in and walked a few blocks. It would be helpful to include a map and instructions to get to the dock on your website and keep it updated.

The captain was very informative and was kind enough to wait for my friend who was running late. Water was provided which was great because we all were thirsty. I would recommend this boat tour to other friends.

We really enjoyed the cruise! Capt. Larry was unbelievably knowledgeable and had some fun stories. My favorite part was going down the river and learning about the Indians and how they shaped Florida. There were so many interesting facts that I never knew! I plan on taking my next set of company.....you’ll see me again for sure!
