Relaxing and educational

We enjoyed the tour very much. The staff went out of their way to keep us comfortable- it was like 100 degrees that day- and provided unlimited cool drinks and ice packs. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and had many interesting stories and observations, both historical and current. I appreciated that they occasionally told anecdotes based on the interests and questions of the passengers. Also provided spot-on dining recommendations.

Fun tour

Very nice crew. Fun boat. The cruise stays only within the inner harbor with a focus on the buildings in the inner harbor and the last 30 minutes was talking about the Domino sugar plant and the ship that delivers sugar. There was only a little discussion on the War of 1812. It was a hot day with very little wind.

Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area, landmarks, and history. The 1.5-hour trip was a nice length. It was a hot day, but they provided free cold beverages - a nice touch!
