  • Lotto Boat
    Boats dance and glide over the crisscrossing wakes carved into Tampa Bay, each craft anxiously revving toward its respective dock to arrive before closing time. All the while, a handful of boats remain on the open water, swaying atop the undulating waves as its passengers continue to enjoy the fiery sunset reflecting off the bay's surface. These select aquatic vehicles carry Lotto Boat's boat club members, who have access to a slew of exclusive perks, such as extended marina hours. Stationed at Harborage Marina, Lotto Boat's 45 rental vessels include kayaks, paddleboards, WaveRunners, and power boats equipped with GPS navigation systems. After hopping aboard a vessel, landlubbers can go jet-skiing, drift over to nearby tiki bars for dinner and live music, or take in scenic views of downtown St. Petersburg. Once patrons make their way back to one of Lotto Boat's two docks, staffers thoroughly cleanse the boat of interior debris and exterior mermaid hitchhikers to prepare for the vessel's next excursion.

  • Tampa Speed Boat Adventures, Inc.
    Turning the traditional boating tour on its head, Tampa Speed Boat Adventures encourages visitors to don the captain’s hat as they pilot their own sightseeing experiences. From a base in St. Petersburg, seasoned instructors teach tour takers the essentials of operating one of the company’s eco-friendly, 13-foot mini speedboats as they cover topics such as boating basics, rules of the water, and at what speed time begins to flow in reverse. Once participants are confident in their training and have donned their life jackets, they snuggle into their vessel and take off on a 15-mile tour of the waterways of Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg. One of the company’s quick-witted, knowledgeable guides joins boaters in an adjacent watercraft on the two-hour sojourn, broadcasting commentary about the area’s history through the boat’s radio-communication system. As speedboats wend past jaw-dropping sites such as national wildlife refuges and Fort De Soto Park, passengers can keep their eyes peeled for passing seabirds and the mansions that famous dolphins call home.

  • Simple Sailing Charters and Sales
    Charter one of Simple Sailing Charters, LLC's sailboats, and take a relaxing trip to Tampa Bay, Sarasota, or Egmont Key. You can gauge just how relaxing the trip will be by the boats' names—_The Simplicity_, The Miracle, and The Dream, to name a few—and their amenities. The Simplicity, for example, boasts three cozy cabins for downtime, and their fleet of wind-powered catamarans means there's not a noisy motor in sight. Even the company's three electric powerboats are unobtrusive, gliding through the water silently unless passengers choose to use the onboard iPod docks to play their favorite tunes or whale songs. The fleet isn't just good for vacations, though. The company doubles as an ASA-certified sailing school, where sailors can hit the decks for lessons that introduce beginners to the sailing world. Other sessions cover specialized topics such as coastal cruising or navigating by the stars instead of just following the most confident-looking bird.
