This boat trip was nothing amazing, what you get is what you see a lot of mediocrity. It cheap but don't expect a lot

Really loved the cruise and the crew. Great snorkeling, sightseeing. I will do this again in BVI. Spend a week on a catamaran.

No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problem. :) LOL We had a fantastic adventure aboard the Trade Winds Catamaran named JADE hopping from island to island on the Caribbean in Bocas Del Toro, Panama. From the moment we boarded the ship the Captain, Guy, and First Mate, Irit, welcomed us with open arms. From that moment on we were treated like... More

Yes, it is/has been in Savannah for months. I was on that sandbar with several of my friends and we were compensated with a Black VIP Player's card. My friends and my compensation is in excess of a $1,000.00 each now. My friends and I have been on almost 40 cruises and know passengers that have surpassed that. So Happy... More

There's no rating, and no review. . .because this boat has been sailing from Savannah, GA, since May, 2014! Except for the time it was stuck high and dry on a sandbar and all the passengers and "non-essential" crew had to be evacuated by the Coast Guard! Looks as if Madeira Beach is left on the pier again! Oh, well.... More

We have cruised on the boat several time during our trips to Florida. I have found it has a very nice box lunch, a pleasant cruise with music on the way, an OK group of slot machines, and a nice atmosphere. I will go again next time we visit Florida.

I find it rather interesting that there are reviews for Trade Winds Cruise Lines in Madeira Beach, Florida since this vessel has not been in port since early December. They are, "supposedly" in dry dock in North Carolina. Their offices in St, Petersburg is closed and their telephone number for reservations 727-394-1000 is saying they still have no news except...

Ok, first of all... If you want to experience going out on a boat for 5 hours with some friends... and only pay 10 bucks.. this is well worth it. Sometimes if you wear Bucs gear on Sundays they let you on free. HOW CAN YOU BEAT THAT? We snuck on our own alcohol (they don't even check) so buying... More

The meal was fair. The slots had no one winning at all that I saw. Roulette was fair. The cruise was quiet.
