Thats a good question? Not sure if people stayed on when we used it but they did tie up at the 02 for a while and cleaned the boat, use your connect card it saves a few pounds. if you sit outback it can be noisy.

Round 50 minutes on the general water bus or 25 on the express which misses out 50% of the stops.
