With the firm hand of Captain D. on the wheel, the Tampa Bay Fun Boat plies Tampa Bay waters, departing from I.C. Sharks Marina in St. Petersburg at noon Monday–Thursday and 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Full-day charters may include Gulf of Mexico trips with flexible departure times and days. Afternoon cruises often involve sightings of dolphins and manatees, while evening cruises offer views of the sunset. Though the Gulf and shoreline provide beautiful vistas, the boat itself enhances excursions with its amenities. The 36-foot vessel boasts a wide open deck perfect for dancing or dining for 35 passengers. It also features large and clean restroom facilities. In addition, the crew serves soft drinks and water on board and invites passengers over 21 to bring their own favorite alcoholic libations.
