We just finished a brunch cruise and had a great time. Omelette to order were very tasty. We probably hit the best weather imaginable and the fall colors were gorgeous!!

I've been three times and love every time. There is always some wildlife to photograph. The booze offered is also a plus! Highly recommend if you like boat rides.
