Captain Jerry, the crew, the whole experience was wonderful!We stepped onto the boat and were treated to life on the water past, present and future. This was a wonderful afternoon of history, education and entertainment.

We spent a beautiful afternoon on the L'il Diamond. The captain was very knowledgeable and informative. He definitely knew his stuff and he let the children sit at the helm for pictures! A pleasurable day! Well worth it!
