$200 an hour, or $35 per person. We prefer to have 6 on board (more fun), but we will take less. Some tours will be longer, or shorter. AND, we can do custom tours.

Our main boarding location is at Waterpoint Marina 15264 TX 105, Montgomery, TX 77356. Please park at Starbucks facing 105, away from the retail center, and walk down to the boat.

Our boats are BYOB so please feel free to bring your favorite food or beverage. We will have a large cooler filled with ice and bottled waters onboard. Our marina also has many places to order food from, or places for snacks available for purchase.  We do not provide any food or drinks.

No.  The U.S. Coast Guard regulations for our tiki boats are 6 people (children included), plus crew.  However, we do NOT have multiple boats at this time.  We suggest a 2-hour split cruise. 

Yes! When we have groups larger than 6 people, we do recommend a 2-hour cruise. We offer “swapping-out” some of your group from either Fajita Jacks, Conroe Lake House, or Papas on the Lake. (Leaving part of your group at one of these locations to hang out, drink, and relax, while the remaining group aboard the boat and goes out-splitting the cruise into two 1-hour increments) 

Yes! Only a couple people in your group? Check out our public charters starting at$52.50/per person.

Our tiki boats are not equipped with a restroom; therefore, we strongly encourage you to use the restroom at the Starbucks before coming aboard but the lake is also the perfect place!  Your captain will give everyone an opportunity to jump in the water.  Take a "leaky" before you "Tiki"!

Our tiki boat cruises between 4-6 mph and has safety rails around the perimeter of the boat. The boat is also equipped with 1 PFD (life jacket) for every passenger, along with all U.S. Coast Guard requirements. Children under the age of 12 are required to wear a life jacket, on any vessel under 26 feet by law in the state of Texas. We do have some aboard, but feel free to bring your own if you would like. If bringing a pet onboard they must have life vest.

We reserve the right to cancel any cruise, at any time, due to weather, safety, mechanical or behavioral issues. If you tour is canceled, your cruise will be offered a rebooking if available or you will be given a refund on the card you booked with (this excludes behavioral and alcohol-related cancellations). If you need to cancel your cruise, we require a 24-hour notice to receive a full refund.

We do operate in the rain as the tiki boats are covered. However, the captain can decide at any time to suspend or cancel a tour due to inclement, severe, or potentially hazardous weather or marine conditions, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Small craft advisories
  • If wind speeds reach 20 mph or gusts reach 25 – 30 mph, and/or waves are consistently 2 – 3 feet or higher, we reserve the right to suspend service until conditions improve.
  • When lightning is in the immediate area, we reserve the right to suspend service for 20 minutes from the last strike in the area.
  • Should an isolated, pop-up storm develop while underway, we reserve the right to return to our main dock or to a secure location at the captain’s discretion until the storm subsides.
  • If a storm does not subside while at a secure location and it is unsafe to return to the main dock, we reserve the right to assist and/or arrange alternative transportation to return the main dock.

Besides sitting back and relaxing with a cold drink in hand, we can pretty much accommodate anything you can imagine. From bachelor/bachelorette parties, birthday parties, weddings & family fun days…you name it and we will try to make it work.  Give us a call for special requests.
