The quiet, eco-friendly electric boats can cruise down Tampa’s waterways at up to 7 miles per hour, after departing from a dock near the Tampa Convention Center downtown. Each boat is outfitted with adjustable enclosures to protect against the elements and a small ice-filled cooler. Passengers should arrive 15 minutes early for their rentals to accommodate a mandatory safety and vessel orientation.<p>
eBoat Tampa began with a pregnancy craving: mom-to-be Anndrea Dohring wanted to glide along downtown Tampa’s Hillsborough River aboard a quiet, fume-free boat. A month after their baby was born, her husband, Josh, realized she—and other Tampa citizens—could realize her dream aboard electric boats. Together, he and Anndrea founded eBoats Tampa, an electric boat-rental company whose fleet of almost silent, eco-friendly boats can shelter up to ten people. Renters glide through the city at up to 7 mph on BYOB jaunts or custom guided tours, which often showcase waterfront sights, or search for the ice cubes that keep the river cold.
