This 90 minute boat cruise to look at the night sky away from Portland's light pollution was most enjoyable. The astronomer accompanying the trip was knowledgeable and fun, and the crew were helpful and very pleasant. A nice and unusual evening.

Great cruise with attentive crew and a great astronomer to point out the constellations for us. Can't wait for the Perseid Meteor Shower cruise. Should be amazing.
