Great experience!

This was a great family experience. Check in at the pier was quick and easy. Everything about the cruise was just like the description. The on board beverages were slightly pricey but really tasty. And the narrator did a great job keeping us engaged. Plus, the scenery is gorgeous. We'd do it again.

A great way to see a beloved city on the sea. We saw so many incredible Navy vessels and the views of the cityscape from the water, as well as the sight of jets coming in and taking off were fantastic.

Anniversary trip

We were celebrating our 53 wedding anniversary so it was a nice treat to stay in Little Italy and take a tour we are from Idaho only thing I regret is that I was groggy when I schedule us to go on Wednesday the 25th instead of Thursday the 26 my mistake but we are elder and things like that to happen so I was a little disappointed that I could not get my refund because being on a fixed income $100 is a lot of money. So that’s my sad story but I would recommend it to people to take the tour the captain Rick and his assistant were very get explaining what’s around the area.

I spontaneously arranged this trip in 30 minutes over lunch. All done on my phone. Very smooth experience. When I arrived at pier 2 90 minutes later, the very curious staff had all my info. I never even had to show my phone. Just gave my last name. The actual tour was perfect in length and again, the captain and guide where super knowledgeable , curtious and engaging.

The cruise was nice. Love the history of the bay. Downside was the galley. Our drink was brought to the table in a dirty glass. It took a half hour to get it swapped out and the new drink came with a large, random piece of debris in it and a bad attitude.
