Fun in the Sun
Sport your bikini and sunscreen while diving into some of the water activities around Tampa and St Pete. Set sail with your group from downtown St Pete for a one-of-a-kind catamaran cruise on the spacious deck of the JP Cat. Sip on some beer or wine while checking out the local dolphins frolicking nearby or close your eyes and lounge on the sunning nets.
Your crew (krewe around Tampa locals would say) will love the water on our catamaran. We sail daily from Downtown St. Pete, FL. Rather spend your day exploring the city? Join JP Cat’s champagne sunset boat tour to start your evening festivities off right!
Tampa is also home of the thrilling theme park Busch Gardens, where you gals can get your roller coaster scream on or cool off on the river rapids ride.
Looking for waves all day look than look no further than Adventure Island water park! Great outdoor fun in the sun doesn’t end there you can also meet some local wildlife at Lowry Park Zoo or the Florida Aquarium. Great for some quality time with your girls during the day.
In need a hair o’ the dog the morning after, then check out one of the top-rated restaurants for brunch and lunch in Tampa Bay, Datz. They serve craft beers, American comfort food and even a gourmet grocery store so you can choose some snacks for later. Don’t miss out on their “Datchos,” a house specialty. Everything is Insta worthy and then you can walk it off (yeah right) on Bayshore Blvd one of Tampa Bay’s most popular walking areas.
If you’re staying on the St. Pete side, then Noble Crust has a brunch with a DJ. It also has great food and is one of our favorite boozy brunches.
Midway is Oystercatchers at the upscale Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay. If your group is larger, they specialize in larger parties. Features a brunch or gourmet lunch (if a slow start) with a menu that includes steak and seafood with a glorious view of the local waterways.
