Elaine C

We had a very nice time on the boat...a beautiful day too....Just a warning to visitors that the line to get on the boat starts forming very early so that you may get a seat on the top deck. We weren't so lucky so we sat underneath. View still good but would have liked to sat above. They had good cookies and drinks on board and the bathroom for ladies was very well kept.
