We'll meet at the Sunlit Cove Boat Ramp in NE St Petersburg up to 8 guests will climb aboard our 22’ Bennington Pontoon Boat for a 2 hour pontoon boat cruise and sunset tour. We’ll make our way through Riviera Bay, which will lead us to Weedon Island Nature Preserve and we’ll head out to Tampa Bay to witness one of Tampa Bay’s beautiful sunsets. Private tours (up to 8) are also available.
Captain Randy (Blue Line Boating)
Captain Randy and Rachel own Blue Line Boating. Captain Randy has been a boat captain for over 20 years with Tampa Police Department's (TPD) Special Operation's Marine Unit and was also a Master Diver on the Dive Team. He has spent his entire career working on Tampa Bay and not only does he know about dolphins, the local birds, and weather patterns, he also understands the importance of how to find a good restaurant on the water and how to have a good time! Captain Randy not only drives boats, he also teaches boating lessons. He has created and developed the primary boating syllabus for TPD, which is used to teach every new Boat Captain. Needless to say, you will have a great time and feel very safe on the water.
We'll have bottled water onboard, but we can setup a catering option for an additional fee. Or, bring your own food/snacks.
We have life jackets and all necessary safety equipment on board. All children under 6 must wear a life jacket at all times.
We’ll make our way through the winding canals to Weedon Island Preserve, where we'll check out local wildlife and we’ll make our way out to Tampa Bay to watch a beautiful sunset!
Summer sunsets are around 8pm, so cruise time may be adjusted. Time is subject to change to ensure we maximize your sunset cruise.
