This ride is a staple of mine, I go there at least once a year. My family loves it. The ride is smooth and the scenery is beautiful. I never tire of it. I like the fact that I can bring my own food aboard and I enjoy the upper deck as I can see for a good distance. They used to have large picnic tables on the top deck and you could spread out all your stuff and just have a great time. The last time I was there though the tables were gone and along with them went some of the fun. Hopefully they will put them back. The boat has a bar and some of they're own snacks that you can buy.
