Fabulous staff to help us get started on piloting our own boat. Clear directions on river rules and where to go - felt very secure. Enjoyed hanging out on dock after the boat.

Great deal. Wonderful customer service. We open to pay the extra $100 to get a captain. Worth every penny. We could all just enjoy the beautiful scenery.

I read that there were up charges for weekends, but I originally had a reservation for Friday night and paid an additional fee then changed to Sunday night and paid another fee. Pretty sure after all the fees it wasn't even a deal with the Groupon.

We were late due to a family emergency, and the team was still courteous to get us set up. While our time was reduced due to an appointment immediately following, the boat was easy and fun to operate. Would definitely do again!
