This event does not come here any more. This is no longer a stop at ft. Meyers beach. I asked a waitress at 2 different bats and they said the boat has stopped coming here. This should be removed from the favorites list

Casino, that's exactly what was missing from our trip. Fort Myers Beach needs a casino. Big M wasn't here.

The casino was about 40 minutes drive from "Time Square" and for us at least, worth the drive. Played the table games and had a little luck. We went home with the same amount of spending $$$ we left with. Nice casino with friendly dealers...More

The big M Casino boat has not been in Ft. Myers beach for over 2 years. I think it only operates in Little River South Carolina.

Had a lot of fun, even though it would have been much better if I won more money instead of lost on the slot machines. When we went awhile ago...had a dinner cruise and the food was really good, too!

You can go on the Big"M" web site and call their phone and they should tell you where they are located. It is not on Fort Myers Beach.
Is there an area on the boat that is outdoor? Or are you inside the boat for the entire cruise?

There is an upstairs area that is outdoors. It isn't very big but it does allow room for chairs.
