We enjoyed a gorgeous Sunday evening on the boat just a couple nights ago. The captain's talk about what we were viewing really added to the experience. I highly recommend this trip to visitors AND locals!

The captain was very knowledgeable about the history and information about the locale... the musician was talented and fun. It was a gorgeous night and a great way to spend 2 hours on a date. :)
