"STAY AWAY IF YOU ARE A WOMAN"
June, 2018
They advertise that the dress code on the boats is "casual". As we were getting on two women staff members stopped me and my husband. They said my shirt (which was low-isn cut but had no visible cleavage and was not a tank top and covered my shoulders) was obscene and I would have to change. Of course I didn't bring a change of clothes... on a boat ride... so they brought out a huge, dirty tee shirt and forced me to wear it over my clothes. They were rude, degrading, and aggressive about the whole thing. They literally made me wear a shame shirt like I was a high school girl who got caught in the bathroom whipping her tits out for the baseball team. I've never been so humiliated in my life. Seriously if you are a woman and value your dignity STAY AWAY

Last Friday my nephew and I went for our first time and don't think I'll be back! It was the worst experience I have ever had! Not only was it too rough to have gone out....at least half the people got sick...they had to turn around early then the machines shut down with NO NOTICE! Then on the way back the boat got stuck on a sandbar for several hours!While getting off the boat after finally getting in..all we got was a "sorry for the inconvenience"! WTH! Didn't get home till 330am!!! NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE!

"Too many smokers and bored"

We went out when the weather was cool, maybe in the Summer it may be better cause you can go out on the deck and just enjoy the water. We did not do the buffet, but it did look limited. The second deck was the only place that was smoke free. The machines were mostly quarter machines, limited penny and nickle machines. If gambling is your thing then this may be fun for you, but non gamblers will have a terrible time and may just get sea sick like many did on this trip. The water was really rough and Dramamine did not help.

We went on a drizzly day, so it was a good day to go. You have to pay for food and drinks--but I think a buffet may have been included with our ticket--since it was our first time on the casino boat. My husband walked off the boat with one hundred bucks--I probably lost that much! You paid for alcoholic drinks. It was a nice afternoon diversion from the tourist attractions in Myrtle Beach.

"Dangerous"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed November 02, 2018 NEW
The boat captain tried to go around a shrimp boat on the way back into the channel at 11 at night and got stuck on a sand bar. My family is stuck out in the channel. I called the coast guard and they knew nothing about it. They said the captain had not reported it. This is extremely dangerous to the passengers. I am in contact with my husband who is stuck on that boat right now and they are not saying anything to the passengers about how long they will be stuck. NEVER AGAIN!
