About The Anna Maria Princess Paddle Wheel Boat

Let us create a fabulous experience that you will never forget, aboard the Anna Maria Princess, AMI’s newest attraction. Our elegant paddle wheel boat launches from Bradenton Beach Marina, a resort marina located just off the Intracoastal Waterway on beautiful Anna Maria Island at 402 Church Ave N, Bradenton Beach, FL 34217.

Our captain and crew will welcome you aboard for a relaxing and memorable experience. Every trip will be a unique entertainment experience with live music.

The Anna Maria Princess is the only paddle wheel boat sailing the waters of AMI and Longboat Key. Measuring about 80 ft from bow to stern, the boat was built in 2002 and was extensively refurbished prior to it’s 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 many guests and is ideally suited to host events of varying sizes and occasions. In addition, the lower enclosed deck is climate-controlled with air conditioning and heating. Please note that the upper deck is only accessible by stairs.

The Anna Maria Princess uses diesel engines, which are much safer than steam engines, to turn it’s 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!
