We wanted to get out on the water for a couple of hours and see the area from a different point of view. Perfect. Even though it was a bit windy, sitting at the tables out back lessened it a great deal. We did not have lunch so the tour was quite inexpensive. Less through Viator! Everyone was assigned a table downstairs in the dining area even if you were not eating so you had a place to leave your stuff while you were on the boat. Upstairs on the Sapphire is a lovely open lounge with bar, cushy sofa like seats and a dance floor. And outside there is the the back deck with tables which is where we spent our time. We did see some dolphin. Enjoyed chatting with everyone onboard. Smoking is allowed on the back deck but it wasn't a big problem. People are considerate.

My friend and I really enjoyed this trip. The boat was clean, the staff was very nice and the trip itself was extremely enjoyable. It was a lovely day and the cruise was very relaxing and we both enjoyed the sights. The lunch was more than adequate. It was truly an enjoyable way to spend a couple hours on the water.

We actually ended up taking the Clearwater cruise not the St. Pete one. The staff was friendly and the narration was informative. The reason they only get four and not five stars is all of our food was barely warm but we were so hungry we ate it just as it was. Tara our waitress was the only waitress and although there were not many of us on board she was still running and yet managed to make it feel like we were the only ones there. It was a very mellow trip which is exactly what the wife and I were looking for. You should take the trip kick back and enjoy yourself.

Beautiful day, lovely boat ride, joyous time with family. I recommend the blackened salmon for lunch!
