The best way to end a workweek is a drink with your BFFs. Between going to your usual bar & staying in, you may get a little bored of the same routine. Luckily fun things to do in Tampa are aplenty, & this boozy pedal boat tour just might be your ticket to those weekend drinks with the besties.

Kraken Cycle Boat Tours offer a uniquely fun way for you to sip & play in Tampa Bay. Just pack up your favorite booze & snacks and hop aboard their party boat that can fit up to 15 people total on a 2-hour excursion.

A captain will steer your ship, but the boat won't move without your pedal power. Each one has 10 pedal stations seated around a central bar & a large bench seating area for you to take a break from pedaling all those empty calories and sugars from your drinks away β€” or simply opt to let your other friends do the work instead & admire the sights of The Bay.

Either way, we won't judge! Each tour includes ice & a cooler for your bevvies & booze, souvenir cups, a first mate who will help you & your crew with anything you may need, as well as play some epic tunes as you float your boat.

It even has hookups for you to charge your phone, & is Bluetooth enabled if you want to play your own tunes.

Oh, and a little mini disco ball to truly turn up the boat party. Now, this is a party we can get behind.

There isn't a toilet on board, so what about using the bathroom? The tour has a designated 20 minute stop halfway through for a bathroom break & to pick up some bites & booze. They typically stop at the docks near Armature Works β€” where you can find an awesome hidden bar on the rooftop β€” & Ulele or Rick's on the River.

So how much does a boat party like this cost? Each tour requires a minimum of 8 guests at $40 per person. If you max out the boat's 10-15 person capacity, the price drops to $35 per person, saving you a total of $75 according to their website. 

Kraken suggests bringing sunscreen, along with your photo ID, your drinks of choice, and snacks for the best boat party. All guests must be 21+ on their public cruise, but private charter events are also available.

We're rounding up all our friends for this one! An overview of Kraken Cycle Boat Tours can be found below.
