The Cross-Bay Ferry offers water transportation and service options to residents and businesses in the Tampa Bay area. The Cross-Bay Ferry is a collaboration between St. Petersburg, Tampa, Hillsborough and Pinellas County. The ferry will operate for six months between the Vinoy Basin in downtown St. Petersburg and the Tampa Convention Center in downtown Tampa.
The Cross-Bay Ferry pilot project has a number of explicit purposes.
The first is to demonstrate passenger ferry technology by operating a new, 149 seat passenger catamaran in a variety of operating scenarios and markets. As part of this, we have designed a demonstration initiative, called "Test the Waters,” which provides civic and business groups as well as individual citizens the opportunity to tour the vessel and take a short ride at no cost.
