Relax and cruise Florida's beautiful intracoastal waterways while you enjoy complimentary cocktails from the comfort of the open-air tiki bar on the PonTiki party boat.

This is the beginning of an adventure for the whole family, a small gathering, a birthday party, or your wedding party. The PonTiki is fun for any occasion. You can even hop on board at Guanabanas in Jupiter for a quick sunset cruise before dinner. All beverages are included with every cruise.

The PonTiki offers sight-seeing cruises, private charter cruises, and sand bar parties on the Loxahatchee River and the Jupiter Intracoastal waterway. Most cruises depart from Guanabanas in Jupiter, Florida.

My husband, three boys age 9-12, and I had a great time. The boys got to fish off the boat and then go to a small beach area where the boys played on the boat slide, swam, fished, and wrestled around on the big floating mat they rolled out on the water. Captain Art was wonderful. We went out for... More

Great trip. Captain Tom is easy to deal with and has great recommendations for where to go based on groups ages etc. Friendly and very enjoyable afternoon or sunset cruise for all ages.

We had some out of town guest. We were originally look for just a simple group boat tour but they were all booked. This was way better. We had three kids and the whole boat to ourselves. Captain Steve was so nice. It includes drinks I would definitely do it again !!

This is the third year in a row my family took a two-hour cruise with this company, and it's always a fun excursion. Pon Tiki has a few different boat styles to select from, and the one we did a two-hour cruise on with our guide Steve was by far my favorite so far. This particular cruise boat was a... More

A group of us had a 2 hour wait for dinner and ran across this boat. The owner took us out for a lap to kill time. IT WAS AWESOME! I ended up driving the majority of the time while he supervised. We were provided wine and beer. Beautiful night and very memorable, spontaneous, excursion.

We just did the Pon Tiki Cruise yesterday with 10 family members and I just want to say what a great job Tom did! I was a bit worried because I had 2 80 year olds with us, but they enjoyed it more than anyone! It basically is a flat pontoon with turf looking grass with a big bar in... More

We took my friend on this cruise for her 40th birthday!! Such fun! Birthday girl rode for free and wine is included! We ordered apps from Guanabanas and brought it on the boat. We decorated and brought a cake too! Captain played great music for us and asked where we wanted to go. This has been my 6th time taking... More

Never went on the pontiki, tried to plan a trip. They were very unprofessional. Told me they there was no problem accommodating my party, then came up with excuse after excuse, lie after lie. WATCH OUT!

My husband and I took our 21yr old nephew and his girlfriend out for the sunset cruise. Had a blast! Very accommodating with times of departure and how long you want to be out for. Each cruise is your own, so its good to go with a group. Took us out to the sandbar and the next day we rented... More

The idea of the trip was better than the actual experience. It was a cute set up with a bar and stools but nothing was working right. The keg and two taps were not connected properly and there was no music playing. The captain was on the phone the whole time which really annoyed me. The view was great and... More
