The price for seniors was a great bargain, a nice overview of the bay. We had absolutely fantastic weather so that made it extra special.

Wasn't expecting much from tour;just a little cruise around the bay. What a pleasant surprise to see the seals and lovely homes. The guide had some interesting stories and the tour was very relaxed and enjoyable.

Based on other Trip Adviser reviews, my wife and I gave the harbor tour a try. We did the 45 minute tour and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The Captain was informative and entertaining. The sights were wonderful. A strong recommendation for sure.
