It Happened to Me Tampa Bay

Hey, Tampa people: Who rents out this palapa boat? (Updated)

Tap to view at full size.

I saw the “palapa boat’ pictured above on the Hillsborough River from my vantage point on the balcony of the Glazer Children’s Museum, where I was attending a pre-launch party for Big John, their new tricertops exhibit (which opens this Friday!).

I couldn’t read see the sign on the boat from that distance. Can anyone tell me whom to contact to rent this boat? I might want to do so for…reasons.

The answer

Leave it to none other than Daniella Diaz, local tech person and cofounder of High Tech Connect and HireUp Florida to give me an answer within a couple of minutes of my posting this!

It’s the Tampa Bay branch of Cruisin’ Tikis, who provide the boat with a bar. You bring the drinks (including booze), food, and music. $300 for 90 minutes.
