Staff is super friendly and have a great sense of humor! Drink specials are worth the extra money as well. Comfortable ride and we all loved it! (We have 3 children, ages 13, 6, and 11)

I'm a local that occasionally likes to do touristy things.. I've been on many sunset cruises throughout the state. Hands down this is the best one yet! The crew make it fun, relaxing, and entertaining. I have to say, my favorite was Eric! Yall rock!!
