    There was no one at the...
    Nancy_R, May 2022
    There was no one at the booth, no one directing you to the boat. The said be there 30 mins before departure to start boarding I was there on time and boarding didn’t started until 2 min before departure time. Perhaps a little bit more organization would’ve made this trip perfect.
    Most horrible experience
    Boby_J, May 2022
    Everything horrible. Dirty boat, dirty waters, terrible views, exorbitant prices, just a crawling float through a mile or two of dirty waters from and to the dock for 1.5 hours. I felt like my money was totally wasted. I don’t know if we can use this as an example of daylight robbery and pirates!
