Unorganized and a Cluster
Brett_P

Cancelled our 3PM cruise day before with no explanation and put on an earlier cruise. Found out 3PM cruise still went out. Not enough seating/poor seating quality if don’t get on first to get good spots. Bad music playlist. Too cheesy and Sinatra. Expected more Jimmy Buffet and island time vibes. Drinks were good and was still cool to see the city. Lucky had a friend group for it to make up for the unorganizedness of it.

This was by far, the best part of our weekend getaway, eventhough it was a last minute decision, the availability was there, also Mr. Robert (Capitan) was super friendly and kind!! The whole staff was friendly too, and the restrooms were very clean! I would had loved for the music to be a just a notch louder but overall everything was great!! We'll definitely be back !!

Beautiful boat! Wish the music was a little better like more island type feel more of a party atmosphere but overall, good relaxing experience! The drinks were good and the staff was really professional and nice!

Not worth it

Boat doesn’t do much to make sure you have a good time, no good music, or anything to hype you up for a good time. Definitely not worth 50$ All it does it go down the river and back, check out the other cruises instead, they’re a lot nicer. So far this was the more boring one, that comes from my friends and I.

It was truly a great and rewarding experience. Glad we got to celebrate my best friend's birthday in this fashion. The ride was a good length. They had good drinks. The views were amazing. Now, food and great music would've truly made it exceptional.

This was a great experience for a small group and the price was right too. Employees were nice. Make sure you are there early, they leave on time and you will wait in line for a drink. Overall it was great, don’t expect a guided tour this is for a leisure boat ride with drinks for purchase. If you have a big group for a bach party or birthday I would recommend splitting the cost of a boat rental.
