Went out for wonderful cruise today. Staff was very helpful, fun, and knowledgeable. Water and ice tea provided. Cruise was 1.5 hours long, definitely worth the money. Also, if you stay at the Jailhouse Inn, you get a discount The Madeleine cruises.

We loved our ride on the Schooner Madeleine. The positives definitely were the crew and the view. The negatives were the lack of comfort, my elderly mom was with us and the seating was not ideal for someone that has a hard time getting around.
