The tour was great!!! Lots of fun! The driver was excellent - gave us some great background on the area to go along with the tour. Also, took us up to the cruise-liners as they were departing, which was spectacular to see. Everyone in my party enjoyed it, and we would highly recommend it to others.
Absolutely fantastic!!!! I live in the area and had visitors in from Denver and San Fran and we all thought it was incredible! The captain was very informative and gave us a great overview of the area. The boat was a perfect size for an intimate tour.
