Having just moved to the area I wanted to check out some tourist areas. I booked the day before and had many email reminders which was helpful. Check in was easy and friendly. And the boat ride was enjoyable and relaxing. It was very beautiful.

The tour guides were very knowledgeable and even had some fun information to share! I would recommend this tour as a way to see the great scenery and not have to hike through it.

Great boat, great crew, exceptional scenery and natural beauty. We did the 80 minute cruise and the weather was also perfect. Naration was informative but not overwhelming which gave you time to relax and enjoy the view.

I looked in the FAQ on their website and they do allow dogs on the daily excursions but not dinner ones as long as they are on a leash. Good to know.

This isn't really a question. Maybe a complete question may allow us to answer.
