It it an incredible and fun experience to drive the boat. The staff seems very competent and responsible. It is a good opportunity to see the harbour and florida's west coast, if you are near Tampa or St. Petersburg.

Had a blast boating in the bays and got to see a few dolphins. You get your own boat so you are in control but safe as you follow a lead boat who knows the waters. Would definitely recommend!
