  • Where and how to we board the PonTiki?
  • PonTiki now launches all charters and public cruises from our new location at Harbourside place in Jupiter, Florida. Our address is 200 N US Highway One Jupiter, FL 33477. Please park in one of the two parking garages located at the plaza. The PonTiki check-in counter is located next to the waterfront amphitheater, next to the tiki hut.

    Please see the following map:

    For a timely departure, we ask that all guests arrive a minimum of 15 minutes before their scheduled cruise, and also that all guests review and sign their safety waivers in advance of arrival, which you can by clicking this link. This will save valuable time in boarding and getting underway. If you have signed PonTiki’s safety waiver on a previous cruise, you do not need to sign it again, you simply need to give your name to our guest services team member upon check-in in order to verify you have one on file.

    In order to be served beer and wine, guests must have their valid ID present upon check-in. We are restricted by law from serving any guest without a valid ID.

  • Tell me about PonTiki’s new public cruises!
  • PonTiki is proud to now offer public cruises to the community on a first come, first serve basis. Without requiring a private charter, you can now hop aboard, whether it’s just you and a friend, a group of 7-8, or a party of 30! Tickets go fast when these cruises are announced on our social media and website, so ensure your spot by reserving your tickets online.

    Tickets are $50 per person for the two-hour cruise, and includes beer & wine for adults.

    Daytime public cruises are always kid-friendly, with island music, a waterslide, floating lilly pads, and more. Smoking is prohibited on all daytime public cruises.

    Evening public cruises will often have different themes, so be sure to check them out in advance online.  Some offer live music or open mic night, and others are lined up to coincide with a big sports event or to celebrate a holiday. Come and take in the sights, have a refreshing drink and meet new friends. Evening cruises are 21 years of age and older, and smoking is allowed, as the boat is completely open air.
