We weren’t given the proper boarding instructions, we arrived at 5:24 for a 5:25 tour only to be told they left a minute before but the boat was no where to be seen on the water. It seems like they left early, maybe because it was the last tour of the day so they just wanted to get it over with.

Fun Trip
Cynthia_A
, Jun. 2022
We loved the trip despite the rainy day. The only unpleasant part was arriving 5 minutes from our departure time and learning we had to be 10 minutes early to board. We are in our 70s, had moved as fast as we could, and we’re on an anniversary trip. Fortunately we were able to rearrange dinner reservations and take the next tour, but it was frustrating. The timing of arrivals needs to be clearer.
