Enjoyed our evening cruise with Capt Gary. We were the only group on the boat that evening so, effectively, had a private tour. Water was calm and sunset was amazing. Seeing and hearing about the lighthouses added to the experience. Good value and highly recommended.

I don't know for sure, however, it is really no place for a dog of any size in my opinion. Unless a small dog and a short cruise, say a sunset cruise. You would have to ask Captain Gary to be sure! Enjoy your trip!
