“We show people the best time on the Water!” This is the Mission Statement of Staying Afloat Party Boat. This is what we do during our free time, it’s that much fun! Come and see for yourself, grab a group of friends and family to check out our amazing itinerary on the waters of Tampa.
This fun in the sun itinerary consists of departing from Rick’s on the River and cruising along the Hillsborough River through the heart of Downtown Tampa. We will boat between Davis Island and Harbour Island, and then head directly to Beer Can Island, approximately a 30 minute run. Beer Can Island is a member’s-only private island that we have access to. They have a tiki bar, volley ball net, and 2.5 miles of beach; you’ll get a good crowd of boaters there on weekends which turns into a party! On the route back home, we can stop at awesome bars like American Social and Armature Works to grab a drink.
During our trip, we typically stop at 1-3 bars and restaurants along the route, depending on how long your charter is. Your group is welcome to bring any food and drinks you like on board. Each boat comes with your private Captain, fuel, bottled water, and two floaties (unicorn and flamingo). The best part of the trip is hands down the Captains. These US Coast Guard certified Captains are people you’ll want to hang out with and they will show you a great time on during your charter.
Such an outing is perfect for birthday parties, families, friends, and even corporate events. Each boat can comfortably accommodate up to 12 passengers, more than 12 people? Not a problem! We can take out multiple boats at a time and accommodate up to 36 passengers. The boats then cruise together as a caravan, we’ve seen some awesome dance-offs between different boats!
If there is a special request for pickup, decoration, or occasion, we are more than happy to help and will do our best to be flexible. We even pick up at AirBnB’s, houses, and restaurants around town. Our pick up area includes Oakland Park Blvd. to 17th Street, and east of I-95. This is an experience your group will never forget!
