  • We had a blast at our wedding and Tampa Bay Watch helped make it so. The venue is exceptional: surrounded by nature, serene, with a stunning view of Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Sunset views from the veranda dazzled our friends and family. Jon was very helpful at every step. We were happy to support a good non profit doing excellent environmental work in our community. We are SO happy to have chosen Tampa Bay Watch. It's the best place to get married!!

  • We had our dream wedding at Tampa Bay Watch. All of our mostly out of town guests absolutely loved the space, the beautiful view, and we're still hearing about the gorgeous sunset everyone enjoyed in the evening (made for great pictures too). Jon was super responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. And we loved that our money was going towards a good cause. AMAZING price for what you get too!!! Cannot recommend them enough... it was the perfect spot to have our wedding and we couldn't be happier.

    Thank you Caitlin! So glad your out of town guests enjoyed the facility, and of course, the beautiful water view. Congratulations from all of us here at Tampa Bay Watch, and thank you for helping make Tampa Bay a better place.

  • Tampa Bay Watch was the perfect venue for my October 2019 wedding. I loved the fact that we had the entire place to ourselves and we could do the ceremony outside by the water and the reception inside. The porch is beautiful for watching the sunset and sipping a cocktail. Many of my guests had never heard of the venue or the organization and thought it was a gem. The venue fee is a little steep but it goes to a great cause and the staff is super helpful throughout the process. I was thrilled to have my wedding at a great place while helping an organization committed to helping the environment. Win win! I recommend asking Jamie from the staff to help with coordinating services and/or flowers. She was great!

  • Getting married at TBW was a dream come true. The venue is absolutely stunning, the proceeds go to an incredible cause, and the staff are amazing. We worked with Jon throughout our planning process and the day of. Every interaction we had with him he was always very positive, upbeat, and made sure we were taken care of every step of the way! He knows the venue inside and out and knows how to throw a great party. Jon's top priority were the bride and groom's happiness; Sure enough, we had the experience of a lifetime. Thank you, Jon!

  • If you are looking for a private, elegant, beautiful waterfront wedding- look no further than Tampa Bay Watch. We were initially drawn to this place due to the organization's conservation and environmental mission- it feels great to support their cause while also getting hitched! We were met with so much more than an environmental space: Jon, the Bay View room coordinator (AKA Wedding Guru) showed us incredible professionalism, quick communication and knew what to ask us without us knowing what kind of things we ought to be thinking about. Jon knows this venue inside and out, due to the number of weddings he has witnessed here. He was SO helpful to all our vendors, our photographer, and even my maid of honor and father as he helped us time when to begin walking down the aisle. Our expectations were exceeded. There are so many small details that, when looking back, were flawless, seamless. Even if there were small hiccups during the day, they were handled smoothly due to Jon's profess... Read more

    Thank you Haley and Ross for the kind words. We're glad your day was picture perfect. Thank you for helping make Tampa Bay a better place. As you mentioned, your rentals go directly back into the education and restoration of the Tampa Bay Estuary. Best of Luck and Congratulations from all of us here at Tampa Bay Watch!

  • Jon at the Tampa Bay Watch was so helpful! He helped us through the entire wedding planning process. The other staff were helpful and courteous when we came to visit the venue randomly for vision and planning. On the day of, we had valet parking set up by the venue and an on-site coordinator (Jamey) to help us with anything that came up. The grounds are stunning and well kept - plush, green grass and clean shoreline. The venue is absolutely gorgeous - the girls finished getting ready in the bridal suite, our ceremony was on the grass, the cocktail hour and sunset were on the outdoor deck overlooking the beautiful water, and the reception space was perfect for a party of ~100 people. The reception space would not work as well for larger parties (say, 130+), but double check with Jon. The cost of the venue was a little shocking at first, as we expected from reading other reviews. However, this cost is WORTH IT. This venue is stunning, you will not regret the extra cost. Also, they put th... Read more

  • I worked with Jamey and Jon- the coordinators at Tampabay Watch ! They both were so accommodating and friendly! It was a pleasure working with them both! The Venue location and the different options they have available for the ceremony and reception made it easy with having a plan A and a plan B - depending on the Florida Weather with rain showers . The day was perfect! I highly recommend this Venue! Such a beautiful ceremony and reception we had ! Thank you TampaBay Watch !

  • My husband and I had a wonderful experience using Tampa Bay Watch as our wedding venue. The view out the window of this venue is breathtaking and we received many compliments from our guests. The coordinator of weddings and events, Jon Ziegler, was wonderful to work with and even stepped in last minute to marry us! We would highly recommend this venue to anyone, especially to people who want to impress out of town guests with the beauty that Tampa Bay has to offer. The best part about Tampa Bay Watch is that they are a non profit organization. All money you pay for the event space goes right back into the community for their children’s summer camps and conservation efforts. Having your wedding here allows you to really make your wedding unique. They allow vendors of all kinds to cater so you can have any type of food you want. Definitely a great place for a beautiful, individualized Florida wedding.

  • Tampa Bay Watch was our dream wedding venue and it did not disappoint on our actual wedding day! Jon and his staff were incredibly helpful and responsive during our wedding planning process and are a joy to work with. The venue itself is picturesque and we were lucky to have perfect weather on our day. All of our wedding guests loved the beautiful water views during the ceremony and cocktail hour and have continued to rave about the sunset. Our photos from our day turned out gorgeous, in part to our wonderful photographer, but also because of the beautiful scenery at Tampa Bay Watch. We cannot recommend this venue enough!

  • If you’re looking for the perfect venue on the water, look no further! We had our wedding in April at the Tampa Bay Watch and it could not have been more perfect. We knew we wanted our wedding to be on or near the Gulf but really hated the idea of having a beach wedding and being in the sand. Thankfully this venue offers a waterside wedding on grass. No sand in sight! The venue faces the west and is just beautiful for sunset photos. Jon was wonderful to work with and helped with any question or request we had. The fact that the Tampa Bay Watch is also a nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection and restoration of the Tampa Bay. I loved that our venue costs all went to help our local area, and really solidified our choice for the venue. Don’t let this venue pass you by!

  • The Tampa Bay Watch and Jon Z. are amazing!! We are so happy we had our wedding here - its the perfect venue - private, on the water, unique building with amazing views, and you can choose your own vendors. This was the first venue we looked at, and after seeing a few more, there was no comparison. The lawn is gorgeous - perfect spot for a ceremony on the water, we had our cocktail hour upstairs on the enormous veranda, and reception inside. Jon was so easy to work with and get ahold of, my mom and I were constantly contacting him and he took it all in stride. He went the distance to work with us and our needs - THANK YOU JON!!! You were amazing!! We felt great about supporting the Tampa Bay Watch and their efforts to restore the bay. This facility is so beautiful, I am already wishing I could come back for another party!! Thanks TBW for making our wedding so special and beautiful :-)

  • This was the very first venue we toured, and we absolutely fell in love! It was WAY over our budget, but we thought we could make up the cost difference in other areas (which ended up being incredibly difficult to pull-off, and really did not happen). We were looking for a space that didn’t lock us into any catering or bar vendors, but also provided tables and chairs so we did not have to also rent those. We both love to dance and happen to be sweaty people, so we also wanted somewhere inside with AC, but were hoping for some outdoor space as well. TBW checked all of those boxes! They have white chairs you can use outside for the ceremony, a variety of tables and wooden chairs to use in the reception space, even ivory table linens you can use. The venue has a lawn and is on the water, there is a covered veranda on the second story (where the reception space is), and the only thing between you and the sunset are some keys! We felt it was the perfect mix between things being pro... Read more
