It was very nice sitting on the boat cruising up the river, but the sights you see on that route are not particularly interesting. The return trip had no comments at all. I also thought that it was an hour and half cruise, and we had not quite an hour. I think it could be made more interesting but not sure how - perhaps a different route if possible, like the other way around.
Slightly disappointed maybe would've been better to go in the opposite direction as there wasn't really much up the river to Herring Island. It was a nice relaxing boat ride though. The constant bitchy commentary from the tour guide/driver regarding the sculptures on the island were boring and churlish.
The cruise was was OK but lacked content. That's not the driver's fault, though; he was very knowledgeable.
