Yacht StarShip Dining & Cruises Launch jet boat thrill ride Bay Rocket this weekend

Yacht StarShip Dining Cruises expands its fleet of unique date night options with the new Bay Rocket, an “adrenaline-filled jet boat thrill ride”. The boat, which begins operation this Friday, will be docked at the Tampa Convention Center at Pirate Water Taxi’s stop #7.

“It is exciting to see Tampa’s growth and popularity. We continue our commitment to growing and diversifying our cruise offerings to ensure Tampa remains a top destination! Bay Rocket is one of the only 5 jet boat thrill rides in the United States, and we are confident residents and visitors will have a blast blasting off on the Bay aboard Bay Rocket” says Troy Manthey, President and CEO of Yacht StarShip. 

Yacht StarShip will run a weekend cruise schedule first before expanding to weekdays in Spring. The 45-55 minute cruises include skyline and bay views, whimsical narration, interactive games, a hand dance party, and 180-degree spins, turns, and dips.

“Be one of the first to ride this jet boat thrill ride in Tampa, Florida!,” said sister company Pirate Water Taxi on Facebook.

The Yacht StarShip Cruises are a cool and different way to do a date night or just to spend a day out on the water for those without their own boats. There is an upcoming cruise for Thanksgiving next week so it’s an option for whoever wants to do dinner while enjoying the views and sights of Tampa Bay.

Days of operation for Bay Rocket will be Friday-Sunday from 11 a.m.-sunset. Adult tickets start at $34.95 and children 5-12 start at $29.95.
