With all the craziness in 2020, it was great to enjoy a good time on the Goodtime III. Special thanks to Amy who coordinated some great seating arrangements and the crew for their efforts to keep everyone safe but still have a great time on the water. As someone with a side hustle in architectural photography, this time of year is always a favorite as (except for Labor Day's washout), humidity starts to drop so the photos tend to be more crisp.
Steve and I took the Goodtime tour last Friday and as usual had a outstanding time enjoying the Cuyahoga river and Lake Erie views. All employees took the proper precautions, assigned seating, masks and service at your table. Everything was pristine and clean. Workers constantly cleaning and making boat look good. We will be back again before they close for the season. Just a very relaxing outing 👍👍👍
Had a wonderful time. If you are worried about social distancing, Goodtime 3 has it all under control. They did all of the right things to ensure I was safe, healthy and I could enjoy my time. Thank you Goodtime 3 for looking out for me and everyone on the boat. Hopefully we can find time to come back this season. Thank you
Do you still have the buffet food on the boats
Captain 👨‍✈️ Rick and his Staff showed me and my Fiancé a GREAT time!!! He even danced with us!!! Thank you guys sooooo much! We’ll be back!!! 🤞🏽❤️❤️❤️😁
Oh yea this happened today on the Goodtimes III, while working my amazing job I got to meet Josh Cribbs
Is there a dinner cruise? If not, are there concession food for purchase?
Good time for all of us, better this year because the river was closed and had to go to a part of the river that we had never been to.
It was a fun trip
Had a great time it was absolutely awesome
The experience was good. We booked the cruise to see the air show, which we did, but didn't leave the dock, because it was too windy. Since we didn't leave the dock, they informed us that we would received two complimentary tickets for another cruise. We are very much looking forward to it.

1,000 Passenger Vessel offering Public Narrated Tours by day and Entertainment Cruises and Private Charters in the evenings. Since 1958 GOODTIME Cruises and Tours have been educating and entertaining young and old visitors and residents alike on the Cuyahoga River and Cleveland’s Lakefront right from East Ninth Street Pier and North Coast Harbor. Two Hour Narrated Tours are refreshing and informative, with a unique perspective of the City and the many bridges that connect its East and West Side. Cleveland, once known as the “City of Bridges” was a power-house during the Industrial Revolution also was home to many of the Headquarters of the Fortune 500 Companies. The history of the Cuyahoga River took many turns over the years, just as the River itself has many turns... The word; Cuyahoga means “Crooked” and was named so by the Iroquoian-speaking North American Indians called Eriez or Erie People. The 2-hour tours are offered Friday - Sunday during the 2020 summer sailing season. Shining a light on Cleveland and the key areas of distinction that have made our country great. You will find a new appreciation for the reversal of years of Pollution that once made international news (June 22, 1969) and brought about the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970 and the Clean Water Act in 1972. There are many significant facts you will learn about Cleveland and the People who started their companies along the river banks.

Come cruise with us - a 3rd generation family-owned and operated business in the best location in the nation - Cleveland is more than a Destination... its a good time!!!
