Dirty, smelled terrible, bad staff and the worst owners we have ever seen. After we seen the unsafe conditions we asked for our money back and were refused we contracted the government to put in a complaint. Stay away far away

The best way to spend an hour learning about this great city. Our tour guide and captain were so informative and entertaining. We loved it so much that we just had to do the harbour hopper in Halifax. Thanks for a great time. So fun.
