Sunset Cruise on the Butler Chain

Sunsets are one of the most beautiful times of day in Florida, and even more breathtaking on the water. What better way to enjoy the evening than to have someone drive you around in a pontoon while you sip a glass of wine and take in the beauty. Sounds great right?! It is true. Sunset…

Are there restrooms on board the pontoon?

No. Our pontoons do not have restrooms on board. There are portable restrooms at all boat ramps, including the Keene Park boat ramp where we launch. You may use them before, after, or at any point during your reservation. All other marinas on the Butler Chain of Lakes are private, so plan accordingly. There will be a Point of Interest map on board that also marks these Restrooms.

Do all the pontoons have a cover for shade?

YES. All of our pontoons have a Bimini Top as standard providing shade for the Driver and back seats. It may need to be reclined for bridge clearance during the rainy season. Our staff will show you how to operate the Bimini Top upon arrival.

Do you rent anything other than pontoons?

No. We only rent pontoons as we feel they are the safest type of vessel to operate on the Butler Chain of Lakes.

Can we have more people on board than what the boat can hold?

NO! Each boat is Coast Guard rated for a certain amount of people AND a certain weight capacity. Neither can go over. For instance, our 10 passenger pontoons have a max weight capacity of 1410 lbs. If you reach 1410 lbs with only 8 of your guests, then the max capacity you can have is 8. If you have 10 people already on board and you are still not at 1410lbs, that does not mean you can have 11. The max is EITHER the max number of people or the max weight, whichever comes first. Please call us if you have concerns about this question as overloading the boat with weight can create a dangerous situation.
