Unique Places to Pop the Question in Tampa Bay

“Will you marry me?”

Ready to ask the question a lifetime? This is a BIG moment and the beginning of an amazing journey. The JP Cat has seen bachelorette parties, wedding weekends, and even onboard wedding ceremonies. But how do you plan the proposal that starts all the celebration? While you should take into consideration the interests of your significant other, we’re sharing several places in Tampa Bay to get engaged to help you pick just the spot!


For the Athlete…

Located near downtown Tampa, Bayshore Boulevard is famous for being the world’s longest continuous sidewalk, running six miles along Tampa Bay. Plan a run, walk, or bike ride along the beautiful waterfront, take in the views of the city at sunset, and then stop at one of the many benches along Bayshore, get down on one knee, and present the ring!

For the Foodie…

Flattering lighting, engaging food, great service…Tampa’s impressive food scene offers a vast selection of restaurants perfect for the grand proposal!

Some of our favorites:

  • Mise en Place for a romantic setting and delicious French cuisine
  • Harry Waugh Dessert Room at Bern’s Steakhouse where you can enjoy amazing desserts in a private setting
  • Rooster and the Till for the farm-to-table fan
  • Castile Restaurant at St. Pete Beach where you can enjoy the most beautiful views of Tampa Bay (especially at sunset) on their upscale, rooftop bar.

For the Adventurer…

You’re about to start on life’s biggest adventure!

Picture it…sailing St. Pete, enjoying a romantic champagne sunset cruise onboard the spacious deck of the JP Cat. Our catamaran could quite possibly be the perfect way to propose!

When you schedule your trip, make sure to give us a heads up about the engagement and our crew will do everything they can to help make the moment special. Following our boat tour, you can continue to explore the city hand in hand with your new fiancé.

For the Chill Girl/Guy…

Some people just like to keep things simple. And simple can also be really awesome. Take your partner to Curtis Hixon waterfront park in downtown Tampa, grab a drink, and stroll Riverwalk. Then walk over to the engraved plaque that says, “Will you marry me?” Get down on one knee and do your thing!

Want to keep things really low-key? Don’t underestimate how amazing and heartfelt an at-home proposal can be.

For the Beach Lovers…

Between St. Pete Beach and Clearwater Beach, we are surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches in the world!

An intimate stroll on the beach under a beautiful sunset will always be a timeless proposal idea. We recommend packing a romantic picnic dinner and packing the ring in the basket. Otherwise, they may notice a ring box in your pocket.
