Located in the city marina adjacent to Fresco's, the boat wends its way through the waters surrounding some of St. Petersburg's most valuable real estate on Snell Isle, making this almost like a tour of the pretty rich and almost-famous. The captain is full of anecdotes (we think mostly true) about who lives where, and many of the names will sound familiar. The boat also tours the Coast Guard station near the USF campus, so it's a treat to see some of those cutters up close. And most of the times we've been on the boat, we've seen dolphins, a couple of which delight in riding and flipping through the boat's wake. The Dolphin Queen takes you on a 90-minute, 13.5-mile tour. Restrooms are available. Snacks, drinks, beer and wine available for purchase. Tours leave at 11:30 a.m. and 1, 3 and 5 p.m. Subject to change; call for updates.
