Took my group of girlfriends on the blue boey - lots of fun! Didn't need a captain because manuvering the pontoon was easy. Lots of fun.

Music volume isn't that loud, friendly staff but wished they moved quicker - lost about 30 min of ride time due to getting instructions, signing waiver, etc.

It was a great way to see the city and spend time a with a group of friends. Beer and food were allowed on the boat, so it was a great time.
