5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

So much fun. We used it to get to a couple of places like the zoo and the aquarium wharf and shark island, but really enjoyed just cruising around the harbor. Great views, excellent weather and such a nice boat to tool around in, fast and smooth. Try to get one of the outside seats when the weather is nice. It's a great ride. The ticket is a true 24 hour ticket so you could get it in the early afternoon and use it all day and again in the morning the next day.
