Great afternoon on the water

I went on the sightseeing tour with my sister and our mother. We spent the entire ride on the upper level, so I can't say much about the inside other than it looked cozy. We enjoyed the view from the table and chairs on the deck - bring sunscreen! Something we regretted not thinking about until too late. The crew was pleasant , knowledgeable and attentive. I read other reviews complaining about the speaker system, but we did not experience any issues - we had no problem hearing the narration. The day was absolutely perfect weather wise; the narration was interesting and informative. An eagle flew directly over the boat on our return which was awesome! I would definitely recommend to both tourists and locals - familiar landmarks have a new prospective from the water. Even if history is of no interest, the ride is very relaxing and enjoyable.

I really enjoy this trip during the entire 120min. Very punctual while the captain and the crew were very friendly. The captain is an outstanding and smart man. We had long conversation about the traveling the world and engineering. My wife and my 3 children had great time. In fact my kids got to try sailing so it was great experience for us all and we would love to come back again. We are originally from morocco and we would love to sail from USA to morocco someday. That's the question I forgot to ask the captain about the logistic of such trip risks/rewards...etc. Hi Captain Jeff, if you are reading my comment please let me know is suck dream is realizable and would it take to do such trip. Thank you and have a nice day. I can be reached.

Great views!

We had a very enjoyable experience. It was a quiet ride (only about 6 other couples- 11:30 on a weekday) and that was perfect for us! The captain and skippers were very knowledgable, with just enough information to keep it interesting, but not too much that it interfered with the cruising. A great way to spend a lovely sunny day on the water!

We really enjoyed the afternoon sightseeing cruise on the Mystere. It was interesting to hear some history of the river and the properties as we sailed. Jeff (the captain) and the crew were very friendly and knowledgeable. We were so excited to see a bald eagle overhead! I would highly recommend this cruise. Very enjoyable.
