Went on the afternoon buffet cruise with a family of 5. For what most cruises charged for just the trip you get a lunch and all you can drink beer, rum punch and soft drinks. The fish and pulled pork were stand outs of the buffet and they did not skimp on the rum. The tour was fun with plenty to see from wildlife to stars homes. The guide was very knowledgeable and added to the value of the tour.

I went on the boat last night, June 9th, with some friends and we had a great time! The Captain was very welcoming as we arrived, our server greeted us immediately, and the DJ started off the ride with a fun, upbeat, and welcoming introduction. The bartender was very fast, no one waited long for a drink (always a plus).Throughout the cruise the DJ was very active with everyone on the boat and some people danced. There were some people celebrating their birthday and were able to give an announcement from the DJ booth, which was great entertainment. BEAUTIFUL sunset view! The food was good for the price you pay and with all the unlimited drink, it made a great package deal! I will go on this again. If you want a upbeat, casual, relaxing, and fun night...this is the boat for you!

We did a lunchtime tour but did not eat. The tour guide was very good. We saw the sights and had a really nice experience. The price was reasonable and the trip was neither too long nor too short. Saw some local wildlife and interesting spots along the way. It was just what we wanted and what we paid for; a quick little cruise that was interesting and comfortable.

The beer was warm & I had better food in jail . All the tables were reserved before hand & I never had a chance to get one . Some of the reserved tables were never even used !!! The price was higher than I was quoted on the phone .
