We made sure we got to the place an hour early as advised, because it's 4th of July. The crew made sure our boat is clean and safe before we boarded. They were all nice, accommodating and professional. Our family, specially our mum, had a blast for her 79th birthday celebration! We'll definitely come back here and do it longer next time.
