Recently went on the Big M for a friend's birthday party. They weren't that friendly at the check-in counter, and lost our reservation but there wasn't much of an issue. We had a really fun time, the sunset is great from the top deck while you head out far enough for the gambling to open up. Buffet was decent. Great... More

We were staying in Fort Myers for a few days and thought the casino cruise might be a fun outing. Had we gone during the week, the cruise itself would have been free with the coupon in the Fort Myers publicity magazine readily available in many places (we picked ours up at the Visitor's Bureau). But we chose instead to... More

Most of the games were reserved before you could even get down to the game floor to check them out, entertainment on the top deck wasn't great, people were vomiting in the stairwells, and it's about 3 hours too long :( the buffet did look awesome, but I don't think I could've eaten with the smell coming from the stairwell....

I enjoyed the boat ride, the view and the action on board. There was plenty of room. However, please look at the weather and decide if you can handle 5 hours of gentle rocking boat. I felt sorry for the 3 or 4 passengers that were losing their lunch and had several hours of sailing left. Know your limitations. The... More

We enjoyed our day on the casino boat. We are not gamblers, but did dabble at the slot machines. The boat ride was enjoyable! The crew was very friendly, and the buffet was very good. It cost $10. 00 to get on the boat.... and I believe the buffet was 17.95. We went to the top deck, and played bingo....... More

I wasn't on the boat personally but my 3 companions said it was horrible. People were sick on the stairwells. A lady barfed in a bag playing a poker machine and kept on gambling. Both boys said the buffet was horrible. Weird items and tasted old. I am so glad I decided to stay home because everyone said they wouldn't... More

Decided to go on the boat after hearing comments from neighbors. We decided to go on a Thursday, thinking the crowds wouldn't be as large and the weather was not expected to be great for that day. Since this was our first visit, we were not sure what to expect. We arrived early (9:15) for the departure and waited inside... More

While the boat is small it is very stable.they have one craps table with five times odds $10 minimum $300 maximum. The buffet was okay with rice and pulled pork pizza and cheese fruit and beats. Smoking was not a problem. Just be aware because of the new five hour cruise there is only two hours and 45 minutes of... More

Crew was good. Food not so much. Slot machines old. Need to get new machines. Can't remember the last time had payout in coins. Don't waste your money

We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the prime rib buffet and salad bar. Unfortunately you may have missed playing some of our newest Bally slot machines located near the main level boarding door and along the back wall of the casino. 24 of these very popular machines were delivered to us new within the last three months and...
