Great trip with informative and not too cheesy commentary. Great to see the city skyline from the water as the sun set behind it. Get their early if you want a seat on the upper deck as they were snapped up quickly!

The wharf area was impressive. It was a great evening for sailing and the views were amazing. We enjoyed talking with the captain and the crew was professional and friendly. Fun times for sure, highly recommended!
