Overview
Drive your own speedboat across Tampa Bay on this sightseeing tour, for which no previous experience is necessary. After a safety orientation, you’ll get aboard a F-13 mini speedboat and follow a guide from another vessel that’s equipped with a two-way communication system to ensure your safety and security. Plus, while cruising around, you’ll be able to explore the coastline and look out for dolphins.
What to Expect
Before getting behind the helm, you’ll receive a standard safety orientation that covers boating basics and the rules of the water. You’ll then hop aboard a F-13 mini speedboat to explore the waters of Tampa Bay, from Fort DeSoto to Egmont Key and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.

While following a guide who will be in a separate boat, you’ll learn about the Florida coastline and get to view islands, national wildlife refuges, and the historic Fort De Soto Park, which covers five islands on the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. Plus, you’ll be able to make stops at various points of interest during the tour, as well as spot dolphins, manatees, tortoises, sea birds, and more.

Great day on the water

Dustin did a great job of accommodating all the different skill levels of the participants. Spent an hour and a half covering just over 20 miles.

Nice combination of sightseeing and big water fun. The staff was great. Can't miss on this one even for a novice boater.
