The best narration we have experienced on any harbor cruise. Saw the 10 lighthouses as promised. There is seating both inside and out. The visibility was excellent inside. There were people with walkers and wheelchairs on the cruise.

This was a nice Lighthouse Tour. I took me a long time to finally get out to do this due to my kids schedule and the tour schedule (they book fast). I was fun and worth going! I recommend (and book early).
