We had a very enjoyable evening. We did the cruise to celebrate a birthday with one of our friends. Thanks to Captain Chris who saved the day by getting our bottle of wine open! And to first mate Katie who was very sweet. It was a very relaxing and informative cruise. I would definitely recommend it! It's also interesting to see "how the other half lives" when you see the beautiful homes situated along the river and the wildlife along the banks. It would really be a beautiful cruise when the leaves start changing!

The captain and the 1st mate were very friendly and made the 2 hour boat ride an enjoyable experience. I highly encourage those near and far to take a ride on the Sandpiper.

This was my 4th trip on The Sandpiper with J&M Cruise Lines. I brought my boyfriend on this trip as he is new to the area and I wanted him to learn a bit about Toledo and the Murals. All my past experiences have included a very informative commentary during the 2 hour cruise. The young girl (first mate if you prefer) could not get the presentation to que from her phone to the speakers so tried to read from a script which she could not be heard and finally gave up. I was very disappointed as was Mark since I had been talking up this Maumee River Cruise since purchasing the tickets. I hope that you can get the audio streaming so others aren't as let down as we were. Our Captain was top notch as always!!

My mother has mobility issues, the gang plank was impossible for her to do. Thankfully some other passengers were able to help get her on and off the boat. BTW my mother was not the only one-there was another woman that required help. The ride was nice and Katie was awesome. Maybe mention on your website that the approach onto the boat is not handicap friendly
