My daughter and two granddaughters and I took the history cruise. Captain Larry is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and was able to answer most of our questions. This is not a luxury cruise where you sit back waiting for cocktails.

Me, my husband, adult son and daughter-in-law took the Tampa History Cruise. My son and I are history buffs, but this tour was very disappointing. The boat is in very poor condition and the seating was uncomfortable; the microphone didn't work so the tour guide...More
I am sorry you did not feel that the tour was what you expected. You were correct that our PA system was damaged by a storm the day before and was not operating. If you contacted me directly and made your concerns known I would...More
