The captain and DJ/host were amazing -- high-energy and knew how to engage (and engage with) the crowd to ensure a fun time was had by all! And other guests were super-friendly as well, which only added to the fun. Highly recommend checking them out!

The Pontoon Saloon was a great experience. Brendan our DJ and floating concierge was amazing and made sure we all had a great time. We took a November cruise and even with the chilly weather it was a ton of fun.

We did the sunset cruise. We had a blast. The captain and DJ were super nice and helpful. Bathroom on boat is clean. It was a great time indeed. Dress warmly if you go out at night in November as we did not and regretted it 🥶 😝

This was fun! Def glad we chose to bring white claws for the sunset sail! It was a nice cruise along the river with some great views of the city. Once the claws started flowing the atmosphere definitely livened up. The crew was fantastic. Def meet other people. Made it more fun when we took our group and met others. The music was the typical hits toons, country to pop. Definitely hit up one of the pontoon saloon cruises! You won’t be disappointed.
