Breakfast might be the most important meal of the day, but brunch is hands-down the most fabulous. In fact, brunch is such a perfect meal that it sometimes feels impossible for it to get any better. Luckily, that is about to change for Floridians. These boat rentals in Tampa are challenging us all to ‘up’ our brunch game by calling us to bring our booze and eats aboard their adorable eboats.
Located at the Tampa Convention Center docks, Eboats Tampa and its fleet of electric boats offer a super green way to float around the downtown waterways.
You can drive any of their vintage-style cruisers down four major channels without a captain. This allows you and your squad of up to twelve friends to enjoy a chill afternoon on the water while exploring the area at your own pace.
The best part is that the boat company actually encourages groups to bring their favorite foods and adult beverages out on the cruise. They even provide a small cooler and ice to store your goodies. BFF brunch boating party anyone?
As long as everyone is drinking responsibly and the driver follows the typical Florida .08 limit, you can sip mimosas, Prosecco and other tasty drinks as you zip along. All aboard the booze boat, besties!
Eboats Tampa does require a minimum age of 25 for the official captain of your crew behind the wheel. But don’t worry, you don’t need to have any kind of boater's license or experience to get out and hit the waves.
You can make yourself at home on these stunning eboats. Since they don’t use a gas engine, they run really smoothly and only reach top speeds of seven or eight miles per hour.
An added bonus is that the inside is comfy and spacious with huge, cushioned seats that will make you feel like you are in your living room.
The windows open and close if you prefer the open breeze or something more cozy on those cooler nights. There's even a Bluetooth enabled stereo system on each boat, so you can jam out to your favorite tunes while you booze n' brunch.
For the sleepy souls who don’t feel like cooking an entire brunch, you can actually dock the boat at a number of riverside restaurants. Enjoy a lazy afternoon aboard the vessel and stop for a tasty treat whenever and wherever you want — there's loads of public docking along the way.
Rental hours are between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. every day of the week. Since there are a limited number of boats, it’s best to make a reservation at least 24 hours in advance.
The company does ask to have a major credit card on file as a security deposit, so make sure to have yours handy.
Whether you want to cruise the sea with your besties and brunch or stop at a channel-side eatery, these boats enable you to explore Tampa the best way — from the water.
