Tour description provided by Viator

On this 1 hour tour along the Waterfront of Downtown St. Pete you'll be "walking on water" with the latest Paddle Boarding concept. It's called a Stand Up Pedalboard. The boards are very stable, have handlebars, easy to use and leg powered (similar to a stair stepper in the gym). Don't be intimidated by the physical aspect because we will just be cruising at a leisurely pace taking in the scenery, and if you don't have water sports experience have no fear as none is needed.
We'll meet up on the shores of Tampa Bay in Downtown St. Petersburg at nearby Vinoy Park. After a brief demonstration and orientation with our Pedalboards we'll set off upon the bay towards the Downtown area where we'll see the growing skyline with prominent landmarks like the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel. Keep your eyes active as we'll be gliding across Florida's largest estuary, home to many fish species, wading birds, dolphin, sea turtles, and of course the numerous stingrays. If we are fortunate enough we could even see the docile and majestic "Sea Cow", formally known as the West Indian Manatee. We will all be oohing and ahhing if this happens! Our experience lead us to Coffee Pot Bayou where we will be amongst some of the most beautiful waterfront homes of the area. The nature sightings will continue around Bird Island Sanctuary, home to numerous bird species. You will be so pre-occupied with all of the beautiful scenery that you won't even realize in the past one hour you've been exercising and working up a thirst or an appetite. Margaritas, Mimosas, or Sangria anyone? As you disembark from your experience you are only minutes from St. Petersburg's best eateries and bars.
