One of my favorite ways to have fun and spend with my friends and family in the summer is on a pontoon boat. Every year my family rents one on Patoka Lake and spend the entire day cruising around the beautiful lake, grilling, swimming, and enjoying each others company. We always look forward to our time on the lake.

I think that's why these party cruises appeal to me so much. I've seen river cruises like these on the Tennessee River in Nashville. But, I have never sen them in Kentucky until now.

SS Tiki Tours

These tiki themed, Ohio River, party cruises set off from their port in Newport, KY, which is right across the Ohio River from Cincinnati, Oho. You can gather up your friends and plan a fun, relaxing, scenic, and informative trip on the river.

No matter what event it is, birthday, family reunion, graduation, wedding, bachelorette/bachelor party, business get together, etc, this is perfect.

Photos and Reviews of SS Tiki Tours
We went out last night and had an amazing time. The captains were awesome & fun! Thanks for helping us celebrate in memory of my brother. - Sharon
The captains were awesome. they were down to Earth and were a lot of fun. The boat was huge with plenty of space and it even came with a bathroom. You bring all your own food and drinks and you can hook up your own music to their wifi. Will definitely go back and highly recommend it. - Maria
Captain Greg is very kind and knowledgeable about the the area of the river we traveled. I loved that we got to see all the stadiums and bridges along the way. - Sara
Captain Schmidt provided us with the experience of the summer. Wonderful host with fun and safety top of mind always. I highly recommend the experience!! - Bill
We went out on a beautiful sunny day and had a blast. Talking, singing, and drinking out on the river. We were all saying we would definitely do it again by the end of it. - Mark
So much fun! Highly recommend. We will be back! Captain and Crew were awesome!!!!!!! - Beverly
I booked a 2 hour tour for my birthday this weekend and I cant wait to book another. my husband and two sons and I had a great trip with Kenton down to the city and back from 5-7. They were friendly, on time and the accommodations were as advertised. we enjoyed the sports chairs, brought some Jersey Mike's and drinks and enjoyed the views the whole time. The sound system was an awesome plus. thanks for providing a little fun for my birthday and in life in general!! it was a great time. - Amy
Had a great time!! Captain Josh was awesome!!!! Definitely recommend! - Becky
We had a great time on our downtown Cincinnati tour. Looking forward to taking another longer tour in the near future! - Leslie
Booked the 3-hour tour for a friend’s birthday and had the best time! Mason was our captain and he did an excellent job! Very friendly and kept us all safe! Gave us options of where we could go. The boat itself has the right amount of shade and the Adirondack-like chairs were great and came with much needed cup-holders! Loved that they provided some stuff so we didn’t have to bring it. This really is a genius idea and I’m so glad it exists! Can’t wait to come back with family and friends! - Anne
