This was a very enjoyable boat ride. We saw many beautiful homes that dot the bay. The lunch was very nice. Unfortunately the wildlife was scarce, but you can't guarantee the dolphins will appear on cue.

We had a large family dinner gathering. Service was terribly slow, food quality mediocre and over priced. I'd classify as a tourist trap and way overrated. Does offer good views, but cost and service fail to live up to a quality evening.

Outstanding view of water. Parking is good. the up stars dining is fair at best. Needs updating! The out side dining is good because of the view. The food is fair as is the service.

Stopped here for light bites and a beverage after the O's game and it was a perfect spot; live music and a beautiful view

So it's always great to be out on the water, and this cruise provides great views of the city from the water. But that's pretty much where it ends. Food is not great quality and setting on the boat is very old fashioned. Not worth...More
