    Great trip, loved the history of the area and stories about the homes, music was good, staff was super friendly. Very confusing instructions on where the boat leaves from - needs to be clearer, went to the wrong location and almost missed the boat!!

    Glad you made the trip! And thank you for the constructive feedback. For people reading this: the marina is very large and has one address for 30 companies. Just follow the music to find us!

    Good cruise and staff .. but cut short due to weather unfortunately. Staff apologetic and promised a refund
    icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
    Yes, South Florida weather changes very quickly. Trust me, we love to show you our waterways. But when a thunderstorm rolls in, we are quick to end the trip for everyone's safety. Hope you can make it out in the future for another awesome trip! And yes, we do refund if the weather doesn't cooperate; this is how we'd expect our friends/family to be treated.

    We were on a girls trip and decided to do something different. Checking out the party boat was a highlight to our visit. Ross and Sadie were awesome captains of the boat. Ross was hilarious and shared some great information about the yachts and homes we saw. Great music, great company, great time! I highly encourage others to cruise along with Stay Afloat Party Boat. You won’t be disappointed

    This boat cruise was amazing! Before getting on the boat the area to wait is nice with comfortable chairs. Captain Harrison and Adam were so nice and really made the experience so much fun. Both were super knowledgeable of the area as well as the yachts and houses on the water. It was probably one of the best experiences of my trip!

    Captain Hunter and Sadie where entertaining, knowledgeable and know how to make the trip enjoyable. The views and stories of mansions, yachts, and characters who own them made this a lot of fun. The music, dancing and humor made this a really good time. The price at 49.95 each was the least we ever paid for a boat tour and the crew made it one of the best. Highly recommend.
