Casino cruise?

We are thinking of going to Madeira beach mid to late July (hubby,9yo and myself). I know my daughter and I will be set with beach and pool, but I know my hubby will be bored. We like to gamble and was wondering if the casino cruise out of Johns Pass would be fun for him to do one day. We usually go to Gulf Shores area but I thought we'd try a new place.

Is water gorgeous like Destin area? How far is Busch Gardens really???

Any bike paths??

Sorry this is lengthy, any info appreciated.

There are www.seacruz.com and treasureislandcasinocruz.com .It takes about an hour to get out where they open the casino, but he could have a bite to eat, drinks etc. The boat ride is nice, and it is a fun time IMO.

The drive from Mad Beach to Busch will be about an hour. Rush hour through Tampa will add time to the drive. I don't know of any bike paths on the beach. On the mainland there is the Pinellas Trail for biking.

Thank you for the info!

I hadn't thought about traffic time in travel to Tampa. Living in Atlanta I'd like to leave traffic behind!!!!

How far in advance to do you have to reserve the casino cruises do you think? Is it something you can do a few days before? I appreciate the web addresses---I can try those too I'm sure for more info.

I would think you would be OK waiting until you are here to get the cruz tickets. Of course holidays and weekends will fill the boat faster than a weekday, but I don't think it would be sold out days in advance. I have got tickets right at sailing time before.
