  1. We are doing the bar hop that leaves from Millstone Memorial Day Weekend. We are wanting to continue the fun with the night time bar hopping, what time would we be picked up, do you pick up at Millstone, and do we pay at the time of pickup for the nighttime?

    1. Hello Pat,

      The Aqua Shuttle will go to Tap & Grill at Millstone, Shady Gators & Lazy Gators, Franky & Louie’s, Bobbers at Alahanna and H-Toad’s. You can jump on and start at any stop. You can purchase your wristband for only $20 and you’re good for the night. We just ask that all payments be cash as we will be dealing with a large number of people and will not have time to run credit cards.

      Thanks and we look forward to seeing you at the lake!

    1. Hello Brynn,
      Our season will start May 1st, seven days a week from 10am to 1:30 am. Very soon will will have the 2017 season Bar Hop Cruises available to book online on our website.

    1. Our Water Taxi currently runs from Bagnell Dam to the 14 mile marker at Lodge of Four Seasons and up the Gravois Arm to Coconuts. If you are interested in our Bar Hop Cruises you can get on them at two locations, either Bagnell Dam at Beavers at the Dam or Millstone Harbor next to the Tap & Grill Bar. If interested in chartering one of our boats, we can come to any location on the lake.

    1. Hello Sam, No you do not have to be 21 to go on our cruises. The bars that we go to are all family friendly during the day but there is one that checks ID’s in the evening on the Howl at the Moon Bar Hop Cruise.

    1. Hello Marcia,
      We don’t garantee which bars that we will stop at but we do try to stick to a schedule so the bars know what time to expect us. The Schedule for the Millstone Bar Hop Cruise is Frankie & Louie’s, Jolly Rogers, Coconuts and Cabana Jones.

  2. Hi I believe it said your operation goes from memorial day weekend to labor day weekend. Are there any kind of events in November or are you shut down completely until memorial day?

    1. Hello Kristine,
      Some of our Bar Hop Cruise do run from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend but we also have Water Taxi, a noon Bar Hop Cruise and Charter Service that starts May 1st and ends Oct 31st.

    1. Hello Lori,
      Although we don’t guarantee the stops we do try to stick to the same schedule and very rarely alter from that. The scheduled stops for the Bagnell Dam cruise are Boat House, Jerk Shack, Coconuts and Cabana Jones.

  3. For the day cruise going from Bagnell Dam are we allowed to bring coolers? I’ve seen mixed answers!

    1. Hello Cassady,
      Coolers are NOT allowed on the Bar Hop Cruise from Bagnell Dam. This has been our standing policy for two years. The reason being that you have to go thru Beavers at the Dam to get to their dock and they do not allow coolers to be brought into their property. If you see anywhere that it says otherwise please let us know. The only cruise that we offer that coolers can currently be brought onto the boat is the Bar Hop Cruise from Millstone.

  4. Hi, I was wondering what bars the barhop cruise at night goes to and how long you get at each bar? Thanks!

    1. Hello Megan,
      Because the schedules can change it is best to give us a call to get current information. The night cruises are scheduled to stop at three bars for about an hour each. The cruise is about 4.5 to 5 hours long.
