Casino Cruises?

Does anyone know if there are any casino cruises still operating out of Daytona or nearby? From my search so far it looks like they've all "gone under"!

The casino cruise out of Daytona/Ponce Inlet has been closed for sometime. I didn't realize the boat closed out of Port Canaveral until I googled it, so nothing nearby. Closet casino would be Hard Rock Tampa or go south to the Ft Lauderdale area for inland casinos.

The short-sighted residents of Ponce Inlet ran the casino boat out of town.

Jacksonville and Port Canaveral are the closest Casino cruises to the Daytona area. They ones in Port Canaveral operate a bus service to pick up hotel guests in the Daytona area.

"They ones in Port Canaveral operate a bus service to pick up hotel guests in the Daytona area."

There are no Casino Boats now operating out of Port Canaveral.

All of them got behind on the port fees.

I think all of the small casino boats in Florida are now gone. You either have to take one of the 3 day cruises to the Bahama's or head to Hard Rock as suggested. Don't know if Daytona has a lot of them but many have those strip mall adult arcades that have slot machines only and most have to pay in prizes not cash. Some have online slot machines that pay cash. I think the Dog Track may have a poker room.

I ran across a flyer today - there is still a casino boat operating out of Jacksonville. It says they will send a bus to Daytona area hotels to pick up and drop off passengers: "Thursdays only."
