This was so much fun! Our tour guides Ross and Andy were great! Instructions on where to go were easy to follow and it didn’t take long to for the fun to start. We saw beautiful yachts and mansions and hanging out the sandbar was the best. They offer water and a cooler to put your own drinks in. The music was great and it was fun meeting other people. Definitely recommend this excursion.

The Captain and the assistant were friendly & clearly explained the rules. There was a mix of music from different genre & language.
Tara_W, May 2023
This is our second time on this boat cruise, and we LOVED it. Highly recommend booking this if you make your way down to Fort Lauderdale. Our group of 10 had a blast, the captains were amazing and made the experience an 11/10. The tour of the yachts was so cool and interesting and then we got to party in the water! Overall, we definitely recommend! :)
Response from Host, May 2023

Great boat!
Kathryn_S, Apr 2023
The boat and the experience were amazing. The address given was incorrect and we had to walk a long distance to get to the correct location. Also( the slip number was not given so when we asked for assistance, they were not able to assist right away.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Sorry for the initial incorrect address. We are so happy you found the second dock and that you had fun. We look forward to having you on board again!

Jennifer & Ross were so much fun. I would most definitely do this again. The upside down twerking made my whole trip 😂

Great sightseeing adventure

What a fun day!! Captain and first mate were amazing and the vibe was on point! Fun music, great people.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
So great to hear! thanks for joining.
Fun but not a float trip!
Sarah_S, Mar 2023
Luke and Kate were so friendly and awesome and deserve a raise! We got good views, good music, and vibes. Only thing I wish they updated (and reason it's not 5 stars) was the advertising on what was included on the event. Apparently the swimming portion on the sandbar goes by a vote and if you get stuck with a group not ready to dive in you don't get to dive in either. My girlfriend and I was def dressed and under the impression we were going floating and swimming and had even been told that before we got on the boat as well. Just be prepared you may not get the swimming portion if that was your deciding factor for picking this cruise.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for coming out and reviewing us. The 5pm offers swimming at the sandbar once daylights savings time hits, so during spring and summer. You were probably right on the cusp of the transition. We hope to see you back out and show you it's 5 stars!
Our captains Ross &...

This trip is a blast. Harrison is a great captain and he made our experience memorable! Just know that if you do this trip in March you’ll be surrounded by college kids on spring break!
