What People are Saying

Outstanding! Very friendly staff and overall a great experience for me and my son! - Theodore W
Nice, relaxing 1-hour ride around the bay. We saw a whale, which I understand is pretty rare in that area. Better drinks and snacks than I expected, it's comparable to a mid-range bar/restaurant. Plenty of room, nice big windows. We liked it a lot. - Tom S
Celebrated my Mom's 70th birthday and we had an AWESOME time. The staff was really friendly and accommodating. It was nice to have a cocktail and go to the top deck to see the city pass by while we were on the water. - Lauren V
