Imagine seeing the perfect sunset with a clear line of sight to the horizon on the Gulf of Mexico near St Pete.  Our sunset cruise takes a leisurely boat ride through the residential canals, where you get to see the homes and the mansions. It is also part eco-tour as we take you past the mangroves of St Pete Beach, and the wildlife that flourishes in the mangroves. In addition to the sunset, you will get to see dolphins and manatees, as well as a wide variety of shore birds. Your captain will give you an engaging narration of the background and history of our area, as well as the local wildlife. Our beautiful waters here in St Pete make this the perfect sunset cruise. We are very close to St Pete, Clearwater and Tampa.

Our sunset cruise leaves from the Tierra Verde Marina Resort. Like our other tours, our sunset cruises are strictly small group, semi-private excursions, with a maximum of 6 passengers per vessel. And with your captain as your host, you will get a more personal and memorable experience on our sunset cruises compared to the larger commercial boats. Food and drink are welcome onboard, so bring your favorite cocktail and store them in our coolers. Our boats offer plenty of room to spread out in comfort. We also provide blankets during the cooler months for your comfort. The 2 hour tour ends back at the Tierra Verde Marina, and you can then take a short walk over to the Island Grille Restaurant, or the Marriott rooftop lounge, Vista At The Top
