Tampa Cruise Terminal
The Tampa cruise terminal is located on the channel downtown, close to Ybor City. It is about five miles from Tampa International Airport. There's a lot to see and do around the Tampa cruise port complex.
Tampa Port officials have worked with the community to develop a lively downtown waterfront. A few years ago, an entertainment complex called Channelside opened on the waterfront and it is a short walk from the Tampa cruise terminals. Channelside has lots of entertainment, shopping, and restaurants in a comfortable water-side atmosphere. The Florida Aquarium is between the cruise terminals, home to over 10,000 aquatic plants and animals from Florida and all over the world.
There is a parking garage at 810 Channelside Drive for cruise terminals 2 and 3. Parking for terminal 6 is located next to the terminal.
