Cruising & Dining
Where does the boat dock and depart from?
Yacht StarShip docks regularly out of Tampa and Clearwater. Your departure site is printed on your confirmation page when booking online. When docking in Tampa, Yacht StarShip normally departs from 603 Channelside Drive, near the Amalie Arena. When docking in Clearwater Beach, the yacht will depart from the Clearwater Municipal Marina, 25 Causeway Blvd., Slip #55.
Where is the normal cruise route?
Yacht StarShip’s normal Tampa route includes cruising out of the Ybor Channel and into the Hillsborough Bay and Garrison Channel. While in route, passengers view Bayshore Drive, Harbour Island, Davis Island and Downtown Tampa’s Skyline. Yacht StarShip’s Clearwater Cruise route includes views of the scenic intercostal waterway from Bellair to Island Estates. Weather permitting, we will cruise into the Gulf of Mexico for a famous West Coast Sunset.
How soon will my party begin eating on our cruise?
Please keep in mind, that unlike a typical restaurant, all of our guests arrive at the same time. Once onboard, you will be greeted by the hostess and escorted to your private table. Your server will introduce themselves and give you the opportunity to decide for yourself how to pace your service. Serving may begin immediately.
What type of entertainment do you have?
After dinner, dance to the sounds of our Cruise Director’s vast repertoire on the lounge deck or relax beneath a blanket of stars, while taking in the beautiful sights and sounds of Tampa Bay or Clearwater Beach. Enjoy the best views, only possible from the water! From exciting dance music to romantic dinner music, Yacht StarShip’s Cruise Director will simply dazzle you. Lunch cruises will feature an interesting and informative narration describing historical points of interest along the route.
Do you offer any vegetarian, vegan or gluten free options?
Yes, we offer a vegetarian option on all of our dinner cruises. For any other dietary restrictions, please let your reservations agent know at the time of booking so we can notify the chef. We can accommodate most dietary restrictions when notified ahead of time.
Do you have a kid’s menu?
Children are welcome to order off of our regular dinner menu or we have chicken tenders and french fries available for purchase on the yacht.
