We had a delightful afternoon cruise despite the hot humid weather; there was a breeze which helped. Enjoyed all the interesting sights. All personnel were very nice and helpful! Thanks.

Informative,enjoyable,and refreshing. The captain ‘s narrative brought us abreast of the harbor ‘s history and present day activities. The slow sail allowed us to relax and take in the sights. The live entertainment brought all passengers together
