As always, the Waterways Cruise was spectacular! Captain Larry was so knowledgeable and threw in personal tidbits along the way. I also got to go in to the wheel house and sit behind the wheel for a picture. The food was delicious and being a vegetarian there was a well rounded variety for me as well. The crew was friendly...

This was my 3rd time out with Waterways and both times previously we had seen whales. This time around the weather was not very good and the waters were rough so I definitely learned that I have no 'sea' legs to speak of. I spent 5 of the 6 hours pretty much sick from the movement but the crew and... More

We took a Waterways Cruise to celebrate my 60th birthday. It was very enjoyable. The views were beautiful and food was very good. The highlight was going up on top of the boat (so be sure to take a warm jacket). You could really enjoy the sights and sounds from up there. We had decent weather, so that was a... More

A group of 20 of us booked tickets for Waterways’ Easter lunch cruise. The reservation process was a breeze. I called to book a group rate and received a discount. The cruise was the perfect way to spend the holiday. As we arrived dockside at Waterways’ port, the captain and deckhands quickly greeted us. They explained where our reserved table... More

We were a little unsure about bringing our boys on the 2 hour cruise. Mostly, because of how the staff and other passengers might react to having a 7 & 9 year old a board. BUT, the staff was amazing!! (So, were the other guest.) We were asked to visit Captain Larry and he let the kids steer the boat!... More
