EVENING CRUISE: Bring your family, significant others, or your best friends on a cruise to view the most spectacular sunset. Have a relaxing and breathtakingly beautiful time. We set off from our docks and head on out through the Long Boat Key Pass to the Gulf of Mexico. Hopefully we will see some local wildlife and a stunning sunset. It’s a perfect way to end the day and share in the beauty of Anna Maria Island.
1-6 passengers can take this trip. We head out on our 29ft Stamas to Egmont Key. This special Island is a Florida State Park located in the mouth of Tampa Bay. Egmont is a wildlife refuge, that boasts an 1858 lighthouse and sunken Spanish forts, which is an excellent spot to find fish and splash around. The only way to get to Egmont is by boat so come out and explore with us!
