My 2 adult daughters and I took the sunset ride on the Elsie J and we loved it! We absolutely loved sitting up top and riding the waves. We'd definitely do it again.

Memorial Day sunset cruise with my guy. The boat was co-captained by Bob Jensen (his grandfather fished professionally on the boat) and Richard. Fun hearing about the history of the boat. Really nice conversation and company. Of course the sunset was stunning! Highly recommend!!!

The pirate adventure was fun for our three boys. We were able to learn about the Elsie J and the area from our Captains and the kids had a blast pretending to be pirates.
