We had reservations for Sunday at one. The boat never left the pier. The Captain never appeared. No one came to tell us anything. Was the tour cancelled? We never knew. We waited over an hour , with others who also had reservations, and finally gave up. We’d travelled 1.5 hours to get there. Besides that additional expense it costs $20 to park!!! The whole experience was terrible. They don’t answer their phone so we still have no explanation or satisfaction.

Food was terrible and long line. Staff was rough looking. I thought we would be ordering a lovely meal from the menu that's posted on the website. I certainly didn't expect scantily clad women pole dancing in stilettos and see-through attire at 1 PM on a Sunday. I guess I didn't read the fine print that this was a loud DJ party boat. At least my husband and I were entertained. Great for people watching:-))

I absolutely love this place! Its not only my happy place in the summer with the water and the weather but the food is realy good, The captain and staff is amazing and extremely hospitable! They go above and beyond to be accommodating to all of their guests! You cant beat the price and the sailing experience on a budget💜

What a sham! “Captain Lucky” is a total crook! Went to a friend’s 30th birthday party. Was promised the entire second floor of the ship to ourselves, but apparently so were the other four parties on there! So three parties were crammed onto the tiny first floor (definitely way more people than allowed by law in such a small space). There were NOT enough chairs. There was NOT enough space. And “Captain Lucky” didn’t seem phased - he must pull this scam all the time! When asked what the deal was and if we could have more chairs he said “I know what I’m doing. I’ve been doing this for 25 years.” Never saw the chairs we needed though. The cold food was grossly warm. The bar lines were long. And truthfully, the Captain seemed drunk (thankfully not steering the boat from what I could tell). AND the best part - when we tried to leave at the end of the night, “Captain Lucky” wouldn’t let us off until our friend hosting the party paid the remaining balance! We were literally being held hostage because he doesn’t know how to run a business and we, rightly so, we’re refusing to pay the remainder since he didn’t deliver on anything promised. Plus, he wanted CASH only. Total, absolute scam. Don’t do it. Look elsewhere.
