Captain Larry and his esteemed crew at Tampa Water Taxi Company glide passengers along the city's historic harbor and Davis Island Canal to spy stunning views of notable dwellings. During the famous homes tour, sojourners careen past domiciles owned by film and television celebrities, sports icons, and champion straw-drawers before arriving upon Derek Jeter's 31,500-square-foot manor. The Davis Island Canal's gentle waterways are dotted with picturesque palaces and wildlife that boasts rich histories the captain—or a knowledgeable guide—is eager to elaborate upon. Tours span 60 minutes, and vessels are known to rub shoulders with a pod of friendly dolphins, often approaching boats to make humans question their decision to live on land.

Origin Story: A Fish Called Larry

When Captain Larry witnessed the fall of the World Trade Center on September 11, he knew he couldn't waste another hour of his life working on Wall Street. So he stopped cutting his hair and migrated to Florida to live out his lifelong dream of sailing the seas for a living, founding Tampa Water Taxi in 2008. Besides getting to share the city's architectural and historical gems with passengers, Captain Larry loves watching the dolphins dance circles around his vessel while pumping his collection of swing music.
