Pleasant Bay Cruise
Sep 2020 • Couples
Went in the morning, stopped off at Fort Pickens, enjoyed the Fort, went for little free bus tour, very informative, saw Blue Angel practicing!! Went for the rest of the cruise, enjoyed it that much, went again later on the evening to see sun set, great way to see Pensacola and taking it at a leisurely pace.

Relaxing cruise
Sep 2020 • Family
Loved being able to relax and view the water with my 4 kids. They loved being able to move around the boat and see the sights. Crew was really friendly and helpful, pointing out dolphins when they were out. We chose to stay on the boat and not get off at the stops, but you can get off at Fort Pickens and Pensacola Beach. The lower level is even air conditioned if it gets too hot for you. Loved it and would go again.

Great way to spend the afternoon

This was recommended by a nice lady at the visitor’s center. Just $20 to go from downtown to Fort Pickens to Pensacola Beach. We just rode round trip, but it is a jump off and jump off of one wished. The captain was having his birthday and his entire family was onboard! Lots of fun and very friendly staff!

Good not great
Jul 2020 • Family
Very relaxing. We spotted quite a few dolphins with the help of the crew. I wish the captain/crew was more interactive or they played pre- recorded informational audios about the area and mentioned historical facts about the fort Pickens. I know that they are not tour guides but they could try to add more informative audio instead of Passengers listening to Kasey Casem on American top 40.

Thank you for cruising with us. Typically during the summer months, the National Park Service has a park ranger on board to offer an interpretation of the local history, wildlife, and information on conservation efforts. Due to COVID, the NPS does not have the resources at this time for park rangers to be on board. We look forward to the day they return!

Nice Cruise
Jul 2020
The cruise was relaxing and a fun way to go sight seeing in Pensacola Bay. The staff was kind and the captain stepped out to greet passengers before the cruise began.

Great Experience
Jul 2020
This is a great way to travel from downtown to Pickens to Pensacola Beach. Staff is very professional. Boat is clean. Some historical information along the way. Boat pulls into Quietwater Beach (Bay side of Pensacola Beach) which is well located to restaurants within walking distance.

We took the evening cruise on a Saturday evening and had a terrific time. The Captain was very professional, interesting sharing his experiences. It's a fun hour and a half with a beautiful sunset and we will definitely do this again.

Great way to reach Pensacola Beach!
Oct 2019
My wife and I took a round trip on Pensacola Bay Cruises a while back - great round trip. Plenty of room inside and out. It's like a Hop on, Hop off. Moderate prices and good snacks. Very clean also.
Really beats the weekend traffic.
Plenty of parking space too.

Beautiful afternoon on the bay
Dec 2019
This is the 2nd time using this wonderful ferry service and it was just as good as the 1st back in June when we took the ferry to Pensacola Beach for lunch at Hemingway's. First stop was Fort Pickens where a number of travelers left us for a day of fishing, sun bathing or Fort exploring taking all of their packed picnic baskets, deck chairs etc. On to P'cola Beach where we had a wonderful lunch. That was back in June, for our 2nd trip, yesterday, the weather is now much cooler and the ferry has a different schedule until next Spring. On offer was a 2 hour cruise around the Bay. The weather was gorgeous, the beverages were cold and being with friends made for an idyllic afternoon. You must try this but be sure and check the schedule first.
