Island Ferry cares about your health,
and the health of its staff.
Please know that we are taking extra precautions to provide clean and healthy boats for our passengers and crew.
At Island Ferry, each family group is on their own boat, and we do NOT mix family groups on our boats.
You can pay online for contact-less payment.
Maintaining Social Distancing between captains and passengers is easy on our 25ft boats.
We disinfect our boats immediately before every single trip, just before boarding. We use a hospital grade disinfectant proven to kill all viruses including COVID-19, Norovirus, Seasonal Flu, H1N1, Hepatitis, etc.
We continue, as always, to disinfect and sanitize our snorkel gear after every use.
Antibacterial hand wipes are available on every vessel.
Fresh air and sunshine has been proven to kill bacteria and viruses, and our open air vessels provide plenty of both.
None of our captains or crew have traveled abroad in the last three months.
We offer guided wildlife and eco-tours on either luxury pontoon boats, or our clear transparent kayaks. Both offer a unique experience for snorkeling, wildlife tours, and sunset tours. We specifically cater to smaller groups who are looking for a more upscale boating or kayaking experience.
Our luxury pontoon boats are floating limousines, with cushioned and upholstered seating, cup holders, and lounge tables. These boats are fitted with the most advanced hull designs available on the market, for a safe, stable, and comfortable ride in a wide variety of surf conditions.
Our kayaks are clear and transparent, and ultra stable, making them safe and comfortable for the novice kayaker.
Our captains and tour guides have all of these traits and more. More than anything else, they thrive on passing on their experiences to our customers, and helping create memories that will last a lifetime.
We have been in business since 2013, although our family has been here in St Pete since 1990. We are a family owned company, and we are passionate about St Pete Beach, and its surrounding wildlife and ecosystems. The uninhabited islands, and remote mangroves and sandbars make the area truly unique. There is no place on earth more beautiful, and we love showing it to everyone by taking you aboard one of our vessels. Whether by one of our Crystal-Clear kayaks, or our low-emission pontoon vessels, we give you a truly amazing experience. Our owners and staff regularly contribute and participate with the local wildlife organizations that look after the wildlife and environment. Our passion for St Pete Beach shows in our TripAdvisor reviews, where we have earned more than a thousand 5-star reviews.
We hire only the finest and most qualified captains, all of them carrying a US Coast Guard issued Master's mariners license. Our guides and mates are true professionals, passionate, outgoing, knowledgeable, and experienced. More than anything else, our staff thrives on passing on their experiences to our customers, and helping create memories that will last a lifetime.
