We took a tuesday night sunset cruise. the boat was very crowded, way to many people on it. No where to sit down, hard to move around; wish they would have told me to boat was so booked up when I called for tickets. bar tender made bad drinks, ordered long island tea, it was awful.

We did the island hopping tour. This was a relaxing,yet fun, day trip. Just enough time at both islands to get a feel for each and whether or not we wanted to return for a longer outing. It was a very relaxing boat ride to each island. Four hours total travel time on the lake. I'd give this a five-star... More

This cruise was a great value to go to Put In Bay and Kelley islands. We were able to book this cruise and it took us to both islands for the same price as a trip with Jet Express. It probably took a little longer to get there but it was a nice relaxing trip. Loved going to the islands!... More

Have taken the jet express from Port Clinton and the Goodtime 3 from Cleveland, but this was the first time we took the Goodtime 1 from Sandusky (Island Hoping Tour). The paved parking lot next to the Goodtime pier is located in downtown Sandusky and very easy to get to. The parking lot is spacious and free parking is offered... More

It was a great time and enjoyed it every minute. I reserved our time on this cruise to celebrate my signifant others birthday. We both had tons of fun! People and staff were friendly and the DJ played great music. We danced the whole way there and back. No fights or arguments on boat. Although we went when it stormed... More

The goodtime island tour takes you to two islands, kelleys island and put in bay island. At kelleys island there wasnt much to do. But put in bay island there was. The monument on the island gives you a beautiful view of the islands and eveb the two Canadian islands. Definitely a must do.

Make no mistake this is a party boat and is definitely not for kids or seniors. For the cost, which is only about $25, it affords a great evening of entertainment to Kelley's Island and back for a great value. You'll find the boat docked in downtown Sandusky where tickets can be purchased there at the ticket booth. If you... More
