My boyfriend and I enjoyed ourselves on this boat ride this past weekend. It was super relaxing and fun. Very easy to drive. He did the driving. And laid back. I wouldn’t totally do it again.

For my daughter's high school graduation celebration, I booked two boats for a group of 4. We had a blast driving these boats and Dara was a delightful tour guide. Highly recommend this adventure!
