Me and my girlfriend had the greatest time on this tour! I would highly recommend anyone to come and enjoy the ride as well as the drinks they have! Captain Evans is hands down one of the coolest captains I have ever had and was a great and courteous person!

This was a spur of the moment activity while we were visiting California and ended up being one of the most exciting activities we did while visit. Everything was perfect. The staff were amazing!! I HIGHLY recommend doing this.
