When you are seated on our boats you will be facing the front of the boat, so yes it would be your right while facing the front. Hope this helps! Captain Jaden

Be prepared with jacket etc, depending on the time of year you cruise and whether you want to sit in the open air (top deck) or enclosed lower deck.
