Welcome to Tampa Bay Watch's Discovery Center Eco-Tours!

Please join us for a relaxing daily Eco-Tour of Tampa Bay on our brand new 45’ USCG-certified catamaran. We will conduct a trawl led by our professional education team, where we will identify and track local species that you can see up close from the comfort of your seat. You will participate in scientific recording and tracking of numerous species, including local birds, dolphins and manatees.


Boarding: We will depart from slip #15 at the St. Pete Pier, adjacent to Doc Ford’s restaurant (just look for our bright yellow railing). Boarding will begin 10 to 15 minutes prior to departure time.


Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to scheduled tour time to allow for time to park and walk to the boat. The boat will leave the slip ON TIME - no earlier, no later - so please do not be late!


Duration: Tours average 75 minutes per trip.


Other details: We do not sell refreshments on the vessel, so please bring your own reusable water bottle to stay hydrated during the trip.
