The 2 1/2 hr cruise was chartered out so we settled for a 40 minute cruise instead . It was nice and relaxing with good scenery . When we go back that way we will do the longer cruise .

This was lovely for me as I enjoyed sitting in the peaceful boat and watching the world go by. My partner however was bored and spent most of the trip fighting off horse flies.
