Alison_S, July 2022
It was a bit confusing at the ferry terminal as there were no instructions about where to wait or that the ferry captain would come up to you to meet. Unless on port (left) side of the boat a little hard to see. Commentary was good Little bit on the expensive side compared to some other tours
Loved it.
