Cocktail Cruises

Leave your worries on the dock, climb aboard our cocktail cruises and party “island style” with us.

Our crew will take you on a two-hour tour in the Banana River while you see what “island life” is really about. Enjoy music as you cruise, drink, sightsee, and ultimately relax in one of the most beautiful estuaries in North America.

Experience an Banana River cocktail cruise and drift away into the fading Floridian sun while slowly enjoying your preferred cocktails, adult beverages, and other appetizers. We aim to make sure that you are able to relax and put that exhausting work week behind you, while experiencing unforgettable views. Raise your drink with other people on the cocktail cruise, make new friends, and wave to passing boats while the cooling river breezes surround you.

Feel free to bring your camera at your own risk. Remember what the locals say, “What happens on the island, stays on the island”. Cheers!

 

Why Go On Cocktail Cruises?

The thrill and excitement of being taken away on a beautiful two-hour cruise while making new friends and enjoying a great drink is palpable. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to finally take a break and relax with the true “island life” experience. Truly, there are only very few places in the world you may be able to relax while the cooling river breezes surrounds you and the others you enjoy your time with. Cape Canaveral FL is one of such places! Be sure to bring any friends, family, or loved ones to a cocktail cruise with Banana River Boat Tours. We’ll ensure your safety while making sure that you are on the water and drinking your favorite cocktail. We also always guarantee that you and your loved ones will experience an unforgettable moment. Whether you simply wanted to experience something new or if this is something on your bucket-list, drifting away into the fading Floridian sun is the way to go!

About Banana River Boat Tours

Banana River Boat Tours is owned and operated by Captain “CJ” Enneking and his wife, Jayne. Captain CJ is a true native Floridian. Growing up motor boating, sailing, and water skiing on Lake Santa Fe, outside of Gainesville, he always dreamed of working on the water.

Captain CJ’s love of the water was instilled in him by his parents. That is evident in the name of the boats, The Opa and The Nana. His father was a great fisherman and even greater storyteller. Thus, the fishing boat became The Opa, aboard which you will catch great fish and learn to tell even greater fishing tales. The Nana is a bit smaller and a bit quicker allowing you to cruise the lagoon in style and flash just like his mom.

As you can imagine, both Captain CJ and Jayne enjoy spending any spare moment they have on the water. During the summers or school holidays, you may be lucky enough to have Jayne, a teacher, as your mate on a fishing tour. On their days off, they stick close to home and you will likely find them camping, fishing, kayaking, canal cruising or island hopping with friends. When asked where they go on vacation, they responded, “We live in paradise, we don’t have to go anywhere”. Captain CJ has found his missing piece with Banana River Boat Tours. It would be his privilege to share his love of the water and his little piece of paradise with you.
