My husband and I recently had a couple visit on short notice and had no problem getting tickets for the Rover. The tour was very informative and the staff friendly. A warm, sunny October day on the Rover made for a very memorable experience.

We all had a great time. The crew was very knowledgeable and very pleasant answering questions. Our 3 yr old grandson had a great time below deck. The perfect weather also helped to make the trip great.
