We saw a variety of boats on the water, several deer and a beautiful skyline of Albany. Overall, it was very clean and very informative. The narrator gave a history of the scenery.

Crew was very pleasant, boat was clean and well cared for. The narrator was fun and full of local information. She was welcoming and worked the crowd before departure. Nice chance to relax and see some of the river.
