I love the water and enjoyed the sea, sun and the relaxation that followed. My better half and two freinds made a bee line to the slots and won a little money. The food is cafiteria style and will fill your hunger but that's all. The 10am trip can provide breakfact but the best trip in my mind is the... More

Took the day excursion on the Big M on May 29th.Only 10 bucks for the ride!!! Nice smooth boat ride and nice to sit on the upper deck for some sunning while we got to international waters. Had the lunch buffet before gambling. It was okay, nothing to brag about but filled up. Gambling was mostly good. There were more... More

Looked forward to a good time. The boatride was the best. What a way to see Ft. Meyers beach at sunset and coming back in at dark. Casino offered more variety than expected however pretty tight machines. Expected more at the buffet for the money. That was a disappointment big time.

We have now been on the Big M a handful of times. The cost without the rewards card is just $10. A small price to pay for a boat ride. With active rewards card its free. We enjoy sitting on top covered deck and playing charity bingo on way out (before casino is open) and back. There are two levels... More

This is a great excursion if you like boats. You can eat a decent meal while the boat travels to international waters to open up the casino. It does have a vibration while pulling out of port, acceleration and pulling into port. Nothing a few cocktails won't cure.

We spent the day on this boat with another couple. Liked that we were able to play Bingo before and after the gambling. It was a fairly "rough" ride that day and there were quiet a few people who got sea sick. We wished the whole boat was smoke free but there were areas that were free of smoke. Buffet... More

Many people enjoying lighting up when they gamble, so we allow smoking on the main deck casino level. We do offer a non-smoking slot area on the second deck dining level if you prefer not to be around smokers. Many of our customers love the fact that our slot machines still pay out in slot tokens, which are then exchanged... More

Have to board by 10:30am, Takes FOREVER to get to the place in the water where gambling is legal. The boat is WORN and reeks of cigarette smoke. If you have a problem with being seasick, this is NOT where you want to go.
