This was my first time trying this. Let me say it did not disappoint…it was one of the best experiences I’ve had. From arrival to departure, the atmosphere was superb. The music was excellent that played in the background while the boat cruised up the river. Beautiful scenery just beautiful…fun for all ages.

Captain was quite interesting and I would give him a 5. The only reason I gave a lower score was that there was a group near us tally so much we could not always hear him. It was a nice way to spend a coupl of hours sightseeing and not walking a lot!

Boarding area was very congested and there weren’t any directions on how to board single file. Luckily everyone seemed friendly and boarded eventually. The boat was very clean and the volume of the speaker was just enough-personal conversations we’re not difficult. Only true big issue was a man was smoking on the side we were seated. I was under the impression it was smoke free on the outer parts of the boat. The smoke was traveling our way and was annoying. If the boat was smoke free an authority figure should have handled that situation.
