Booked a rib ride for my Goddaughter over from Canada and myself. What great fun, in safe hands with a fantastic captain. Lots of squeals and excitement for a great price too. Recommend this.

Took the morning harbor cruise on a hot day. The breeze was great and really enjoyed the views and stories about the amazing events that occurred here. It was a small boat, but easy to move around to take everything in.
