  • Awesome ship, a lot of good history, fun for the whole family. Kids really enjoyed it (ages 6-16), and the staff was awesome!

  • Their sunset happy hour on Fridays and Saturdays (weather permitting) is amazing! Get there when they open an hour before sunset so you can get a good seat. It's $5 to board the ship and they have a small bar with reasonable prices. What a unique and relaxing place to soak up the views.
  • Well worth seeing. Staff very knowledgeable and clearly proud of the ship's heritage. Easy and free parking was a surprise as it was the only time in Key West that was the case!
