Make Memories Aboard The Charming Anna Maria Princess

The Anna Maria Princess is the only paddle wheel boat sailing the waters of AMI and Longboat Key. Measuring about 80 feet from bow to stern, the boat was built in 2002 and was extensively refurbished prior to its inaugural Sarasota Bay cruise in 2018.

Featuring ornate wrought iron railings & massive wooden paddle wheels, the Anna Maria Princess is fashioned after a classic design. With two decks, The Anna Maria Princess can accommodate up to 80 guests for our regular daily cruises and a 125-guests capacity for special occasion charters, private parties, weddings and other events.  The lower enclosed deck is climate-controlled with air conditioning and heating.

The Anna Maria Princess uses diesel engines, which are much safer than steam engines, to turn its massive twin paddle wheels.
So come on aboard!! The Anna Maria Princess will make your island visit or special occasion a memorable one on the waterways of AMI and Longboat Key! Our experienced staff is ready to assist you with planning your cruise!
