Trips limited due to time of year. The weather a bit drizzly. The lady in the ticket office was extremely friendly. The boat well maintained and comfortable. The views still stunning. An excellent 1 hour trip.

Staff were excellent and boats very reasonably priced and easy to use. We stopped at a small island for a bbq picnic. Ryan in particular was a charismatic and extremely helpful staff member! Thanks very much for an unforgettable day
