River of Lights returns to Tampa for the holidays
Sure, you can wait at your house hoping carolers swing by your neighborhood to fill you with holiday cheer. But where’s the fun in that? In the city of Tampa we cruise while we carol. Pirate Water Taxi, my favorite way to navigate the stretch between Sparkman Wharf and Armature Works, is bringing back it’s fabulous River of Lights ride.
You will pass beneath low bridges to enter the beautiful Hillsborough River for a one-of-a-kind tour of lighted bridges and downtown Tampa.
Pirate Water Taxi Captains will entertain riders with a whimsical narration and you can join in for a sing a long of Christmas carols. If you’re not feeling merry, you’re not doing it right.
Rides begin November 29, and will continue on select nights through December 30. Each cruise lasts about 50 minutes and depart at 6pm, 7pm, 8pm, 9pm and 10pm.
