We are providing a complimentary - 2 hour captained boat ride every weekend to Florida families! 
Yes, a FREE captained boat ride (with a captain not a salesperson) for you and your family to enjoy some time on our beautiful waterways.  


Please feel free to bring some snacks, your camera and of course sunscreen and take a well deserved break with your family to enjoy the beautiful local waterways of Bradenton and Sarasota.  You may even see some dolphins! 

Waves is truly grateful to the community for supporting us and we want to say "thanks" as we celebrate our 13th anniversary this October.  Plus, we are so fortunate here in Bradenton & Sarasota that we didn't get the brunt of Hurricane Irma.
