Amazing experience!!
The ground staff was kind and guided us on the safety process. Pilot was super nice as well and explained the whole time what we saw. I would definitely recommend that tour to a friend

Great! (even in the rain!)
The staff and the cruise were amazing! It was raining but the views were still great. I thought the storm might cause me to get motion sick but the boat moves the whole time so it was fine. The staff still took pics of us out in the rain. Perfect experience!! The inside of the boat was clean and nice, too.
