I wish I could have actually enjoyed the cruise, but this was not the case. After our child ran off the boat screaming with horror because he thought there were sharks in the Maumee river you guys did a fantastic job of calming him down and got him to stop crying. Since he was still too big of a whimp to go on the cruise you sent me a full refund. I will be sure to schedule another cruise with you guys and find a babysitter for the 7 year old baby. Thank you again for all your help.
Especially liked the choice in music! Staff was friendly, boat was clean and views of the river at dusk were very beautiful. It was fantastic mental therapy at the end of a long work week. Thank you for the great service that you provide for our city! Mark Wagner
I enjoy the cruise very much. The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable. Thank you
Great trip, great tour guide, great Captain! We will do it again!
Jodie and paul are amazing. My Brother and his wife were here from Arizona I wanted to do something fun. It also my husband and myself first time on the cruise. it was a awesome cruise and Jodie told us things about the Maumee we didn,t even know and we live here. we made a wonderful memory Friday night. so thank you for a fun filled evening, and the memories.

Capt and crew member for Friday were awesome and extremely knowledgeable of maumee river and area made the boat ride quite worth it. Would go again because of them. They deserve a lot of praise.
Boat crew was very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the narration during the trip. Nice to be able to bring food and drink aboard. One suggestion-cushions for benches. Two hours on a hard metal bench created problems for me. By the end of the trip I was extremely uncomfortable.
would have liked somewhere to put food items... the old table was gone :( also missed playing of music . bit overall great night for a company outing on the river

good job with the explanations of the cruise narrator -- smooth steady ride of the boat -- boat was fairly quiet also. Good length of time for the price - 1 hr 45 min. One note - would have liked to have gone more toward Lake Erie (or that direction - out into Maumee Bay) - although I don't know if this type of boat is designed for this.
Dispite the windy cool weather the trip was enjoyable. Thanks to the Crew and all whom made it happen.
We loved this experience. Always awesome to learn history and new things about your city!
Great way to see the city from a different view. Nice ride.
Great staff, friendly and knowledgable about Toledo and the Maumee River. Would recommend to anyone.
The cruise itself was a lot of fun and also entertaining and informative! We enjoyed our guide and her narration and learning more about the river and surroundings. It was a great value, as well, which is always a nice bonus!
Enjoyed hearing about history of river, and things along the river. Everyone was very nice and enjoyable to be around! Will be coming back in the future!
I thought the whole transaction was handled very well ! You sent out a reminder which I thought was really a great idea as some of us older people could easily forget .Jodie & the Captain went out of their way to please us ,such as the pictures that they posed w/us .I felt safe at all times which is also important !!! I knew most of the history that Jodie told us but many others on board I bet did not know .I had "out of state " women w/ me & I feel it was a great venue for any visitors to our city . Thank you ,Sandra Fish
The captain is a wonderful person I don't remember the one girl's name that's on there but she is very polite had a great time would recommend it to anybody great people had to make an emergency stop Gentleman got heat stroke I think but they handled it very well was still a pleasure to cruise they kept apologizing which wasn't their fault I hope the gentleman is well also
Narrator was very informative and entertaining. Boat was clean and everything was very efficient. I really enjoyed it. Do you ever sail out to the mouth of the river?
Was actually a nice experience. If I had to give one criticism it would be in the narration. The overuse of some phrases became annoying such as "by the way", "just so you know" and the usage of "okay". She has a good humor about her and was pleasant other than the redundant phrases. Have referred the boat ride to friends!
The concept of a boat ride is great! You have a nice boat, good location and fun personalities in the captain and crew! Where you need help, is the City has to clean up the dock. Totally disgusting to see so much trash in the water. The content "facts about the Maumee" is good, I learned many things that I didn't know! Remember not to tell the group when a house is not occupied, you are inviting potential criminal behavior. Yikes. Also, these houses are your bread and butter, so only point out the good- Don't mention un-kept lawns/brush etc. Don't eat while talking. Go on a cruise with your hubby and learn all you can about engaging the crowd and polish up on professionalism. You will have a long and rewarding business! Great work.
Not the fault of the boat owners, but it seemed the company handling the schedule changed the launch time from 4:30 to 6:00 back to 4:30. We had to make changes in our plans with our out of town visitors. My reservation confirmation showed 6:00. Hopefully this situation has gotten resolved. The excursion made up for the inconvenience. Great time had by all. Thanks for the memories.
Great experience. Thank you!
Very relaxing, ride down the river. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely go again.
