It was a very hot day but a beautiful day for a boat ride. This was my second time riding his boat and I enjoyed myself again. The Captain was very knowledgeable and my children really enjoyed it. We will come again!

We went on a 90 min. Cruise , it was very informative. Captain Mark is very knowledgeable of the local area and happy to share his knowledge or just let you enjoy the beautiful scenery. Well worth the price of admission.

The operator says YES. But sometimes they operate from the north side of the river where it would be a little more difficult. You should definitely call the operator in advance.
