The cruise with Captain Dave was wonderful. There were 5 women in my group. We took our wine and sandwiches on board. It was relaxing and informative. It takes about 90 minutes, $30 each.

Sure Steve. We will go out if only light drizzle as we have a covered top and sides to let down. But in case of bad weather we will refund money.
