I have always called day of, reserved seats. Don't know if they have group rates. Lasts 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Run by husband and wife, easy to contact.

That's fine. It's bench style seating so it would need to be a small cooler. Please keep in mind that the cruise is 1.5 hours and we don't have restrooms on board.

It's roughly 100 miles from Port Everglades, about 1 1/2 hours using the Turnpike. It's about the same distance from Port Canaveral, using I-95
