Very friendly staff. Relaxed atmosphere. Informative Beautiful views

One of the people in our group was feeling ill prior to boarding. They were kind enough to let us exchange the tickets to the next day's cruise, the narrated one. We were originally booked for the evening cruise with music. Unfortunately, that was the only one during our stay in the area. It worked out fine, as our friends had never been there, so the narrated cruise was actually better for them. My husband and I would like to go back and take one of the evening cruises next time we go out to Mesa.
