"Probably the best time I ever had at downtown definitely recommend 10 out of 10. Lots of beautiful views!"

"Boat ride was FUN! *SIT IN THE VERY BACK!* Captain recommended us to sit in the back and it was worth it. Definitely the funnest part of the boat. Felt the full whip from the sharp turns."

"The ride also offers views that you wouldn't be able to see elsewise, like the lighthouse, the mansions, the hospital and the large ships at the port of Tampa. We happened to see dolphins, as well. I went at 3:30pm and got some great, relaxing shots of the dimly lit sun on the water with the cloud coverage. So, thrilling ride which also happened to have moments of serenity when we slowed down."

We had a BLAST on the Bay Rocket! Such a fun and exhilarating ride. Our guide and captain were both awesome and due to unforeseen circumstances, we got to ride twice today! Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a thrill. Can’t wait to ride again.

Daun Lutes, Google Review

Fun experience! The captain is an amazing driver. Candi, the first mate, is so fun and I like how they talked about some history of the area as we idled down the channel before starting the thrilling ride! I would recommend to anyone visiting the Tampa area

Great outing for locals and tourists. Teens and tweens will get a thrill. Bay Rocket is just downright fast fun. If you're looking for a quiet cruise to sightsee, this isn't for you. If you want to go downright fast on the water & experience fun twists and turns, with party-style music playing ... then buy a ticket and hang on tight!

Dylan Peterle, Google Review

Exhilarating experience. Really got the whole boat involved with good music. They had some great trivia about Tampa Bay. Would do it again.
