“3 hour tour.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

My husband & I took this trip for free as a gift from one of the resort sales pitches. Slight delay in start but eventually underway. The sights were good and beautiful homes. The dinner was average but just nuked food from the grocery store. The crew however was very pleasant.

“Relaxing. Beautiful Sunset from Boat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hour cruise on the Serenity. The time flew by. The commentary is minimal and informative. The captain did his best to accommodate picture taking opportunities. We were staying at the Wyndham Santa Barbara, which is where the boat is docked. If you listen to the sales presentation at the hotel/resort, they give you two tickets for the dinner cruise.

“Great trip, food, reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

We booked a couple of tickets on the Serenity III upon our hotel's recommendation. It is a 3 hour tour that starts with them playing the theme for Gilligan's Island. This 70' yacht maxes out at 49 but there were about 20 on our trip. We cruised up the waterway through 3 draw bridges to the ocean at the Hillsboro Inlet light house and Coast Guard Station. Plenty to see, lots of photos taken. Once there we turned around for the return trip, we were fed a nice buffet dinner of lasagna, salad, and bread, all cooked on board. They do not serve alcohol but let you bring your own. The dinner/cruise was $ 46/pp, which I thought was a great deal. The staff was very friendly and attentive, especially Donna, who we were able to talk to at length.

“We really enjoyed ourselves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We took the 3-hour dinner cruise and had a really nice, enjoyable time. The dinner buffet was Italian and included snacks & appetizers, non-alcoholic beverages, and dessert. People could bring their own alcohol and the staff would serve it to them. The staff were all very nice. The mansions were gorgeous, and the trip included going right by the lighthouse. Everyone had their Christmas lights and decorations, so that was every beautiful to see at night. The really nice thing was that, for almost the whole time, we were the only ones sitting at the back of the boat on the lower level. We had it to ourselves while everyone else was either on the top deck or at the front of the boat.

“Cruise and experience well worthwhile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

This intimate 3 hour yacht cruise (about 20 or so passengers) was an excellent way to experience the inter-coastal through the Pompano Beach area, and see the adjoining canals. The cruise was narrated live by the Captain (who was both professional and humorous). The scenery was beautiful, the narration informative, and the length of the cruise seemed perfect (at a leisurely pace). The cruise went from full sun to the night sky ...so, there were some great views. There were also cocktail snacks served upon boarding and a lasagna dinner mid-cruise.
My husband and I would highly recommend this cruise.
