CLEVELAND — 3News' Dave Chudowsky grew up in Northeast Ohio, and for him, a Classic Cleveland Summer always included a cruise.
In the 1980's it was on the Goodtime II followed by the Goodtime III in 1991, and still, to this day, it's a tradition that he's made sure to pass down to his family.
A Cleveland staple, The Goodtime III sits on the East 9th Street pier and is difficult to miss.
It's a quadruple deck 1,000-passenger luxury ship that is 151 feet long, 40 feet wide, and weighs over 500 tons.
The enclosed lower deck is a perfect spot to eat and listen to music while the spacious sun deck and semi-opened second deck top delivers incredible views of our amazing city while enjoying snacks and beverages!
“It’s a unique perspective of the city, the views that they get and the things that they learn about the city they always say, I did not know that," said Captain Rick Fryan the president and director of this family-owned and operated business in Cleveland since 1958
The daytime cruise is a narrated chance to learn all about the city of Cleveland including the skyline, port of Cleveland, docks, the break wall, the lighthouse, Flats, bridges and so much more. You can also enjoy a sunset cruise, dinner cruise or Friday night happy hour cruise. The Goodtime III will also cater for events.
Trips on the Goodtime III go until Labor Day and on weekends through September.
The Goodtime III is about to board, and you better believe the Chud's will be there, it's a summer priority and truly a "Goodtime".
