We opted for the longer cruise to Mt Kineo which is only offered every two weeks. It was so enjoyable and relaxing. Highly recommended.

Beautiful! Impressive and the crew were great and informative. I had perfect homemade clam chowder. You can go down under the deck and see the engine, that was interesting. Also the cliffs were beautiful and the tour guide gave a lot of information.

Trip is scheduled for 3 hours. Way too long for what you see. The scenery is pretty but the same all around. 1 hour would be sufficient.More

Thank you for your review. We recognize that a three hour cruise is a little long for some people, especially those with children. Next year we will be adding shorter, more family friendly, cruises on Sundays. We hope you'll get a chance to try it...More

Really sorry to reply so late. You are allowed to bring both food and drink aboard. We also have a galley that sells sandwiches, snacks and soft drinks.
We have a small dog. Is there a kennel nearby that we could use while on the boat?
