Need to show sites on both sides. All references were off the right side we sat on the left. Our seats were Fine. The sights he talked about were on the other side so I could only see them under the sail

Good but could have been better

I loved the boat and the captain had vast knowledge of the harbor. The only negative thing was I was seated on the left side of the boat and most of the narrative was directed at the right side points of interest. With the sail up I couldn't see the points ge was talking about.

We enjoyed the tour very much. The staff went out of their way to keep us comfortable- it was like 100 degrees that day- and provided unlimited cool drinks and ice packs. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and had many interesting stories and observations, both historical and current. I appreciated that they occasionally told anecdotes based on the interests and questions of the passengers. Also provided spot-on dining recommendations.

Fun tour
Ron
, Jul 2020
Very nice crew. Fun boat. The cruise stays only within the inner harbor with a focus on the buildings in the inner harbor and the last 30 minutes was talking about the Domino sugar plant and the ship that delivers sugar. There was only a little discussion on the War of 1812. It was a hot day with very little wind.

Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area, landmarks, and history. The 1.5-hour trip was a nice length. It was a hot day, but they provided free cold beverages - a nice touch!
