Cruise Route: Departing the Harborage Marina in St Petersburg, the typical 2 to 4 hour cruise route for the Smooth C's is north to the coves of Snell Island, where we oftentimes see manatees and dolphins while admiring the waterfront homes. Heading south from there, we cruise through the North Yacht Basin and by the historic Vinoy Renaissance Resort and Marina to take in the great views of Straub Park, Beach Drive, the Museum of Fine Arts, the St Pete Museum of History, and the New St Pete Pier, a nearly $100 Million project opened in 2020. The Smooth C's then cruises to the South Yacht Basin, where you'll have great views of the world-famous Dali Museum, Al Lang Stadium - home to the Tampa Bay Rowdies, and Albert Whitted Airport (St Pete is recognized as the birthplace of scheduled commercial airline flights). The Smooth C's then cruises to the Bayboro Harbor - home to the U.S. Coast Guard St Petersburg, the Port of St Pete, and USF Bayboro Campus. Time and weather conditions permitting, we may cruise out into the Bay for great skyline or sunset views of downtown St Pete and the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.
Charter routes of 4 to 8 hours may cruise to Tierra Verde, Pass-A-Grille, Isla del Sol, and Boca Ciega Bay. A minimum of 4 hours is needed for destination dining >
