We did the nature/wildlife cruise on 2/11 and sunset cruise on 2/12. Great fun, crew was awesome. Matt led the wildlife excursion and Toni led the Sunset cruise. It was a great anniversary activity for us.

We sure enjoyed the cruise with Captain Larry, Toni and Anna. Nice pontoon boat with fiberglass type seats. Canvas “safety” panels along railings help protect stuff and little people.
