SS Tiki tours is one of the best experiences I’ve had in all of my years living in Cincinnati. If you don’t do this, you’re missing out. Kevin is awesome, you bring your own food and drinks, and have a fun packed 2.5 hours of cruising down the Ohio!

Best experience ever- would give 100 stars if possible! The boat was amazing and had everything we could want and then some- bathroom, bar, speakers, microphone to name a few. The captains were a blast and completely made the experience- hyped up the games we were playing, got pictures/videos of our group, helped set up coolers and pick up trash, and even helped us carry things from the car to the boat. I could not say enough amazing things about this experience, but it is a MUST! Thank you Greg and Tim!!

"Our Sunday afternoon boat ride was great! So much fun....our captain was excellent and the two grandkids had a blast! My nine year old granddaughter went from being scared at first, because it was her first on the water in a small boat, to telling everyone that it was the best day of her life! Our first date was cancelled due to weather and the reschedule was handled professionally and thoughtfully. I would highly recommend this cruise for a fun and relaxing time!!!"
