Events: 18th August 2018


Goodtime III River & Lake Tours

For courtesy, comfort, and just plain fun, you cannot match the experience of a cruise on the Cuyahoga River and Lake Erie aboard Cleveland’s largest sight-seeing vessel. The Goodtime III is the largest quadruple-deck 1,000 passenger luxury ship on the Great Lakes, which offers plenty of room, and you are not confined to your seats.

Whether you choose the spacious top sun decks, the large semi-opened second deck or the main glass enclosed lower deck which is air conditioned and heated for your comfort, you’ll enjoy the cruise. Our sight seeing trips are unequaled and perfect for individuals, families and groups, large or small. You’ll enjoy the fast changing panorama of Cleveland’s skyline and the exciting Flats area as you listen to Larry Morrow point out the many sights and little known historical facts about our All-American City.

The Goodtime III is running River & Lake Tours starting June 15th. They are available daily (except Monday). Make sure to check out special tour times available during Memorial Day Weekend.
