Whether it’s happy hour, a holiday party, a birthday or just a weekend getaway, booking the Vanguard for an at-dock event grants you both a stunning venue on Harbor Island and a prime starting point to explore the offerings of bustling Downtown Tampa and Channelside.

Check-in/out times for overnight guests are flexible, but check-in is expected to be 3pm while checkout is 11am. Event duration times are also flexible for at-dock events. Our price for at-dock events and overnight guests includes our captain and a stewardess, as well as platters, snacks, and beverages.
