Definitely worth the money. Fun for kids and adults. The staff were great and the company pays close attention to not over book each trip so it’s never overcrowded.

It was our second time doing this ship, first in Clearwater and now in St Petersburg Madeira Beach. Both times were awesome not only for adult relaxation with included beer and wine but for children's entertainment as well.

They put on a nice act for the children, interact with them, have a water gun fight, tell stories, paint their faces. Free beer , wine and soda is a plus. Nice boat ride for the adults.
