The P.A. system was not loud enough to hear any of the announcements about what we were looking at along the route.(while the engine was running only)
It was just a nice, enjoyable evening for our friends and us! We were made to feel very comfortable by the staff. One thing I would suggest is the sound system is terrible. Didn't make or break the trip but it would have been nice to hear some of the interesting facts as we motored down the river, couldn't hear anything.
Great time! Very relaxing boat ride. Very nice crew.
My only suggestion is to work on a better sound system.
It was difficult to hear the commentary during the ride. Will definitely go again.
We had a nice time on the Sandpiper this past weekend. the weather was great, boat was safe and we had a great relaxing time. would be nice to have drinks and snacks for sale on board, but for a 2 hr ride it was no problem. took a few photos of the sun bouncing off the water, few selfies with husband and just an easy ride to a long week. would be willing to go again.

Tour guide's microphone went in and out, and she was very negative. There was a large group on my boat who set up a large table and food for themselves. This made it difficult for the rest of us to maneuver. Not enough trash cans. Need fans on the boat.
It was a very relaxing, enjoyable ride. We learned a lot of interesting info along the way. Great experience overall!
Very polite hostess. Great views
Oh my goodness what a relaxing couple of hours. The Captain and crew were wonderful. Thank you very much for a wonderful family time. We will certainly be back next year. Thank you!
We had a great time with out of town family. It was the perfect activity for our crew of all ages.
I have been on the cruise line for many different situations mainly businesses that rented it in years past. I was surprised that there was not As much interaction with regards to what’s what and where. Very nice people! Unfortunately, I booked this for my mother and father in law who are In Their 90’s, and they were both ill and could not come. But my husband and our kids and their spouses came because we had paid. It was too last minute to try and find replacement for them. I know that the gal said she would talk with you about refunding their tickets. Thanks again we would come back!!!!! Kelly m.
Cruise was affordable. The staff was amazingly friendly and knowledgeable. My husband and I took this cruise last year and brought our family this year. They loved it. One suggestion, I would like to see a sign for the cruise that says “cruise boarding line begins
here” so people know where to stand and wait until boarding.
I like being on the water, and I don't own a boat. The location is right in downtown Toledo. When we arrived back to the dock, there was an outdoor concert going on, and we enjoyed that. Afterwards we walked around the river and enjoyed that.
It was a fun boat trip and a fun evening in Toledo.
Great time and appreciated that you can bring on a picnic lunch and alcoholic beverages.
Would have been much better if you offered adults only cruises. There were several small children on our cruise, none of which were interested in the cruise and only a few of their parents actually watched them. The others let them run.
I thought there would be more narrative from crew about Toledo history and the activity that occurs along the river as well as what sites we were passing along both shores. The weather was very hot(no fault of cruise) but perhaps no one else would have been interested. Still a good way to see the sites from the river
Beautiful evening on the River
The crew was very knowledgeable
The cruise was very informative and extremely relaxing. My family had a great time. We will definitely be doing this again.
During the first half of the cruise, the music playing was obnoxious. It was changed when our input was queried.
Great time with my boys. It was the second time and will be doing it again as well as spread the word how great it is.
Jason & Ashley were great. We even saw ourselves
on the 11 o'clock News.
I had originally booked a Friday night 2 hour cruise, which was canceled due to lack of people. The lady that I spoke with on the phone told me about the water taxi. We took a trip on the water taxi and it was perfect. Everyone was amazing. Thank you!
Even though we were running late, the crew was very accomodating, even signing for our pizza sice we missed it's delivery. We had a wonderful time!
It was a great night, the crew was nice and friendly! Our students really enjoyed the ride!
Nice, relaxing and kid friendly.
It was nice and comfortable
Staff was helpful with my disabled husband in a very kind and in a non condescending way.
They were both energetic and knowledgeable.
I’ve been on cruise before but this time learned a lot about Toledo and the Maumee River did not realize.
Fun, interesting and scenic!
Staff was amazing. Very welcoming and fun.
Our first time. Very enjoyable. Thanks for the treat.
Cruise was very relaxing and a great way to spend time with friends. Thank you.
The staff was courteous and polite.
This river ride was very interesting and enjoyable in spite of the rain. To view the grain ;elevators as well as the industrial sites was new to me as I am from Montana and Arizona. Our production facilities are entirely different than the large final export facilities and was fun to see. Crew was professional and the thing started exactly on time and that is different from many venues one might attend. For what its worth, it is easy to recommend this cruise.
It was super relaxing considering we had a group of 9.. 5 of whom were kids. It was an informative and entertaining experience.
Lovely, gentle cruise along the Maumee River that provides a view not seen by many (unless you own a boat!). It was great that we could bring our own food, but be prepared to eat with your food in your lap - a full boat means that you have no room to set anything next to you on the bench. The sides of the boat are open to the sun, so sunglasses, hat, and even sunscreen are a good idea. I'll do another Sandpiper Boat trip in the future!
First mate is our granddaughter,have never been on the river and enjoy history about nautical life...looki,g for new ways to improve our tours,Mystic Belle,Vermilion river. Cruises.. Will recommend your tours on our trips as another outting to customers
Great crew, very knowledgeable. Relaxed atmosphere. I have lived my entire life in Toledo and can’t believe that was my first time on the Sandpiper! Have raved about it to family and friends and plan on taking another one with family in the near future!
