    Special night with work team

    We had 13 employees take the cruise. We had so much fun talking and being with each other. The staff was accommodating to our groups size. The meal was very good. I would have liked to see more of the area but the views we had were nice.

    June 8th cruise

    Everything was great. The only thing to complain about was that drinks were not filled often enough. The music was fantastic.

    Amazing and worth the price

    This boat trip was so much fun. It was upscale and was clean. The crew was AMAZING! The entertainment (Joe the singer) was incredible and versatile. Worth the price of admission right there! The boat was lovely and had 3 levels, the top being a viewing deck. The area that we sailed in was nice and calm and did NOT go out into the waves of the Gulf. This stayed in the bay and under the bridge and back. Was a full 3 hours, but the time went by fast. The food was very yummy I just wished there was more of it. The appetizers were VERY expensive to buy, al a carte, and were just OK. I am not a boat person and took Dramamine so I would not be sick and it worked just fine. The boat really doesn't sit in 1 spot so it's a constant glide. The sunset was very pretty and overall was a great trip!

    The sunset was amazing! Entertainment was good; of course I danced. The service outstanding! The shrimp and grits, well, could have been a lot better(nothing that took away from such a beautiful night) The restroom, clean! I thought the whole evening in itself was great and would definitely recommend!!!

    Good cruise

    The cruise was nice and a good value considering that they provide 3 hours on the boat, food, and music for approximately $250 (tax and tips included in this amount) for two people. ... read more

    Hard to find, but worth the effort!

    Directions are difficult to get! Located inside a gated community-beautiful area. The gate to the marina was locked and we had to call to have someone let us in. But once that frustration was behind us, the staff was kind and the entertainment was great. I did have to send my fish back-it wasn't cooked, but was delicious when they finished with it. My date's steak was cooked to perfection. It was very enjoyable. I would recommend signage or a flyer handed out at the gate with directions to the marina. We had to stop twice for directions, and each time we were given different information.

    could have been better

    The boat was nice, the food was great! However, the staff seemed so drab (at least our waitress) and there was some confusion about the package we purchased, so they were trying to charge us for things that I had already paid for in upgrades. Don't buy the pic....take your own, quality was not that great (maybe low on ink or something). The entertainment was absolutely wonderful, had people laughing and dancing. I was sort of disappointed in how people dressed, it said absolutely no denim or flip flops, yet most of the guests were dressed VERY casually (shorts, flip flops, denim) I understood it to be up-scale, which we don't get to do very often, so we did feel overdressed, the one woman in a bridesmaid dress made me feel a little better :) SUNSET WAS AMAZING!!! Overall it was nice.... read more

    The dinner cruise is a fantastic way to end your day. Dinner was great, the DJ was entertaining. You also can slip away on the top level for some quiet time. The ages varied, there were only 2 kids and they were around 10 or 12. The cruise is not set up for kids but the ones that were there were very behaved. I would recommend this to any couple. Don't spend the money for the pictures, bring your cellphone camera.
