SunCruz CasinoIf you want to experience the Gulf of Mexico but do not have the time or budget for a full-fledged cruise, don’t worry, SunCruz Casino Cruises provides short trips with slots, craps, dice and blackjack. Cruises depart Tuesday through Sunday all year long. And the best part is, SunCruz is only 2.6 miles from our New Port Richey hotel!
Cruises cost $5 which is then provided back to you in the form of a token used for game play. Cruise guests must be 18 to play the various games onboard and must be 21 if they choose to take advantage of the cruise bar. Cruises depart several times daily (visit website for schedule) but it is recommended that you arrive at least 30 minutes early in the months of June through November and 45 minutes to one hour early for the months of December through May.
Cruises typically last between 5 and 6 and half hours not including wait time. Cruises begin with an hour long boat shuttle on the SunCruz Casino Express during which time you can watch for dolphins, seabirds and other marine life off the ship’s observation deck or from the windows of the ship’s upper level. Typical time spent at the casino varies between 3 hours and 4 and a half hours depending on the chosen cruise.
The main casino is anchored in the Gulf of Mexico and comprises three decks and over 12,000 square feet of space. Games available include over 325 slot machines, video poker and several tables games. From our hotel you can easily reach the casino’s shuttle dock station. You simply go right (North) out of our parking lot on highway 19 for 2.5 miles. Turn left onto River Gulf Road and go just over 200 feet. Take the first right on Bay View Street and you are there!
