Great day! Very informative and friendly staff. Nice experience. The bloody Mary’s are pretty good. Lost my favorite scarf on the top deck so make sure your prized possessions are securely attached.

We had a fantastic cruise today and enjoyed it tremendously! The day was gorgeous(remember sunscreen) and although we have lived in New London county for over 43 years, we saw things we have never seen before! Definitely doing this again and bringing friends!!

Despite the weather, a little drizzle the tour was great. The boat is clean, large and plenty of seating inside and out. Difficult to hear narrative if outside, but they do provide headsets at no charge. Food and drink on board. Staff was very friendly.
