Our family of 5 took a 3 hour private sandbar cruise on the Pau Hana. The cruise was the perfect length, giving us plenty of time to see the sights and also stopping at a local sandbar for a dip. Captain Kirk was awesome - personable, experienced operating the boat and knowledgeable about local landmarks and history. The boat was clean, comfortable and well-stocked with beverages. This was our second Pontiki cruise and we will definitely cruse with them again. If you are looking to for a "chillaxing" time on the water I would highly recommend Pontiki and Captain Kirk.

Thank you for writing a great review! Capt. Kirk takes great pride in his job and we are very lucky to have him as one of our main Captains on Pontiki! We hope we will see you again soon!

We had so much fun! The captain and his crew were great...very friendly. Beer and wine were included on this 21 and older cruise but you can bring your own if you want. Great beach music, enjoyed mingling with others on board, beautiful scenery...I highly recommend. I’ll do this again!!

Incredible time on the 2-hour 5pm cruise this Saturday. What a great way to get out on the water and enjoy beautiful, sunny South FL. There were a ton of boats flying around but captain Chip made the trip smooth and enjoyable. Friendly service from Mike the bartender too. You can bring your own food and drinks but we were fine with the Rosé and Bud Light included in the per person cost. Follow them on Facebook to hear about great specials too. Highly recommend!

The boat is clean. There are good options for drinks. But the boat was waaaay overcrowded so much so that we had to stand the whole hour it took to get to the sandbar and the whole hour home. We couldn’t talk to the group we were with because it was too overcrowded. Also, the captain only let us stay at the sand bar for 25 minutes. The sandbar was awesome but the staff didn’t provide floats. Also, I think it’s silly to only stay 25 minutes there and ride on the overpacked boat for two hours. For the value, we would never do this again. We paid 250.00 (not including tip) for our family of 4 to ride on an overpacked boat. The kids obviously didn’t get any drinks. Definitely not worth it.

This was the biggest hit of our week-long vacation in Southern Florida. We had a two-hour experience with approx 14 people and everyone was raving about how much they loved the trip for the rest of the week.

The crew was fantastic and asked us what we wanted to do with our time and was able to accommodate a passenger with a mobility disability. I wish we would have gone for one more hour to spend more time on the sandbar, but overall 2 hours was a pretty ideal time for a trip. There is a bathroom onboard which made things super convenient for our group (we also had an infant with us). Plenty of seating, table space, and a great selection of drinks. Oh, and least to mention the SHADE! The covering on the boat was perfect for our group and there was still plenty of space and seating for those who wanted to be out in the sun.

Family in the area are already looking into going on the PonTiki for events with their friends and work, so I dare say we cannot recommend it enough!

Captain Chip and his staff could not have made this a better experience! We did a private charter for 12 people, which included two teenage boys. Captain Chip and the staff set up everything for us, from our catering to the music (and their recommendation for catering was fantastic) to all other safety measures that made our ride seamless and worry-free. We took a beautiful evening cruise to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday and they made it a wonderful experience, from explaining various places along the way, to even giving some of the history of Jupiter, Jupiter Island, and our beautiful lighthouse. They did provide beer, wine and water, and I loved that the beer was from our local brewery (Tequesta Brewing Co). The only advice I'd give you is if you order catering, make sure you bring something to carry any leftovers off the boat! We are definitely doing this boat ride again.

I booked a 2 hour private cruise on Pau Hana for my husband to celebrate Father’s Day, and we couldn’t be happier with our experience! Captain Kirk was very friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us the history of the area, the Jupiter lighthouse, etc as we rode and saw the sights, then took us to an almost empty sandbar (we were looking to social distance) so our kids could swim and play. The boat was extremely clean and well appointed, and we all had a great time! I highly recommend this experience, and we would love to go again sometime.

We booked for a bachelorette party and had a freaking blast! Chip and Greg were great hosts. They showed us the mansions, let us play the music we wanted to play, and took us to a great swimming spot - overall took great care of us. 10/10 would book again.

We had such a blast on PonTiki! Greg was our bartender and he was awesome. The area was gorgeous and we loved stopping at a couple beautiful sandbars. It was great to control our own music and Greg kept the drinks flowing - it was a great value for what we paid. We ended up extending an extra hour because we were having so much fun! Highly recommend!

What a great night! Thank you for providing us with a super fun time. The crew is amazing and the captain is top notch. There were 10 of us and another large group on board who were so entertaining. Everyone joined together for some dancing and singing. Music and boating bringing people together. What can be better than that!
