I went on this cruise multiple times in the past 10 years but my recent visit has been my favourite so far! Melissa and Mackenzie were beyond AMAZING. They were super super fun and knowledgeable and the tour was very informative and interactive.
The tour guides, Will & Matt made the "booze" cruise so much fun. Their stories were perfectly timed and the banter between them was just enough to have us all in stitches! The beer selection was amazing and the bread! Yumm! Definitely will recommend to all my friends!
Went on the tour the morning of my birthday, and it was absolutely incredible. They shared some great stories about the area, while providing such a great view. Highly recommend to anyone who's in the area, it was wonderful.
Went on the one hour cruise as a family of 4. It was absolutely beautiful and the tour guides were awesome! My son's loved all of the information and stories. I would highly recommend going and I would even go again in the future.
The view was beautiful as it's been every time we have visited before, and the social distancing procedures didn't hinder the experience in any way but were still safe and effective.
