This was a great experience and I highly recommend. The boat is on the smaller side, so it’s more intimate than the larger boats that have 100+ seats. Love that it was smaller and more personable. We paid $43 each for a ticket which includes...More

Sorry for the delay. The cruise is 90 minutes. The boat ride itself might be an interest. I would say the narration might not be as interesting to this age group. The ride and the sights should be an interest. Jerry B.
