amazing experience. great tour guide, beautiful sunset and lots of bats. The boat was comfortable but keep in mind that it is open so the sun does hit when it is hot. Bring a fan!

Amazing time. We saw tons of bats and Ashleigh did a great job! It was a hot day but so much cooler on the water. Parking at Hyatt was easy and nice that there’s bathrooms there too.

Took my 7 and 10 year old kids. It was a great tour, awesome guide, and 1 hour is the perfect length.

The best way to see the Congress Street bridge bays! Easy to get to from our downtown hotel. Captain Laia’s narrative was casual but professional. Top notch!
