How do I make a boat with a camera that can move?

I was working on a theme park ride with a little boat that goes trough a ride. But I wanted it so you can look around you in the boat just like a real ride. But everytime I make movement on the camera it automatically moves the boat with you and if I want to move the boat with a matinee or something I get a boat that doesn’t move but the camera doesn’t move either. Can someone give me an idea to make this boat and still be able to move it with a matinee or level sequence while you can also move the camera inside the boat?
