This was a unique and fun venue that our guests loved! My daughter's ceremony and reception were held on the Anita Dee II and we have had so many positive comments from everyone.
Working with Katherine and Colleen was wonderful and the staff were all very professional. We had a evening wedding and I was concerned because there was an afternoon wedding. However, the turnover was smooth. We were also very fortunate to have wonderful weather and Sat night fireworks which made the evening very special.
For a relaxing and unique summer wedding this is certainly a venue to consider.

We really liked the idea of something unique for our wedding and the ceremony and reception aboard Anita Dee II was enjoyable for everyone!
I would say the only negative remarks are the coordinator could have done a better job of letting us and everyone know what was going on as some times there was lack of communication and the Captain had not practiced the ceremony so it was just read and not really rehearsed. That's probably our fault for not having a friend do the ceremony. It was always maybe in our best interest to have hired a day of wedding planner/coordinator, which we didn't and learned from. Also, there was another wedding earlier in the day so I was picking up a cigarette butt on the upper deck close to when I walked down the aisle.
Otherwise, the venue is a great choice if you are looking for a different option. The skyline views were incredible! I would definitely do my wedding again on the Anita Dee II :)
