My wife and I enjoyed a relaxing cruise with Capt. Dave and another family. The weather was perfect and Capt. did an excellent job pointing out sites to see and sharing some of the local history. We’ll definitely be back!

The captain was really nice and knowledgeable about the area and its history. We were a little undressed (the water was a lot colder than we expected) and the captain had comfy blankets for us. Had a great time and would definitely do it again.
