Our new Eco-Tours have begun service from the Tampa Bay Watch Discovery Center! Moored at the St. Pete Pier, our brand new USCG-certified catamaran Eco-Vessel provides on the water family-friendly public Eco-tours and school field trips, 7 days per week. Tours explore Tampa Bay history and the marine life you’ll find in and above the bay. Day tours include a fisheries trawl, bird spotting and identifying specific traits, dolphin and manatee identification and behaviors, all while enjoying a relaxing bay cruise. Our Sunset Cruise includes all of the daily activities, except for the trawl, but also includes a stunning view of our fabulous Tampa Bay sunset. Our professional Marine Biologists provide insights into the local waters and species while conducting scientific research. Proceeds from your tour supports the important environmental restoration work of Tampa Bay Watch.
