Great Time!

The tour was most enjoyable, the Captain and crew were both personable and entertaining. The boat was nicely configured for comfort and convenience. The ride was smooth and there was an unobstructed view of all the points of interest. A great time out on the lake!

Captain Jen really went out of her way to make this a fun and special trip for everyone on board. The group we were in had a lot of young kids. I loved how interactive and engaging the captain made the trip for them, as well as the adults. Definitely recommend.
