Very bad customer service. They didn't answer our calls when we were looking for the charter and just called back only after the ship has already left. WOULDN'T RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE AT ALL

This was just a very pleasant trip on the lake for about an hour. We have recommended to friends and if they had a longer trip would love to go on it.
