Great tour of the south and north Bay areas, with what seemed to be co-ordinated Helicopter performances nicely interjected to an informative narration of the cruise... Great to see the Bay and get a better feel for the whole area ... Would recommend it... easy to find, plenty of space on board, on time departure and friendly staff... Thank you!
