The Tampa Rowing Club provides the best in recreational and competitive sculling in Tampa. We are blessed with the best rowing conditions on the planet almost every day of the year. The beautiful and protected Hillsborough River winds gently through Tampa and there is virtually always glassy water as shown in many of the photos below. We row from the historic Jean Street Shipyard where the water is not affected by wind and very few power boats.
Our members have unlimited and unfettered access to our many club boats which accommodate any form of sculling from beginner to expert. We have a variety of low cost memberships available. We have the lowest fees of any club in Florida and doubt any club offers as much rowing opportunities for so little cost.
We have restarted our Learn To Scull sessions following the current anti-social distancing guidelines. Our focus is in sharing our love of the sport and not making money but we do charge a small fee to help remind the people who signup to actually come.
Guests are always welcome, and we are happy to allow members of clubs which suffer with less perfect conditions to row at no charge for a few outings. Just use our contact form to reach us. There is a signup page for rows each day. These are open to skilled scullers and they have completed the required waivers as indicated on the signup page and the waivers page.
The club was formed in the late 1960s and has a rich and colorful history.
This web site provides a great deal of information about our club, its equipment, our rowing waters and how to become a member. This web site is made up of a hierarchy of pages starting in the menus listed on this page. If you are using one of those phones that makes you dumb, then the menu tree is probably only revealed if you mash on the Menu button on the upper right of this page.
