Needs a better boat

I think the boat ride was over priced for the boat that we had it was old and dirty looking other than that we had fun and loved the captain.

Temeshia, Thanks for writing a review. The boat you were on is a 2019 model. However please keep in mind that this is a rental boat that’s exposed to the sun and outdoor elements. Unfortunately the night before our area got hit with severe rain and thunderstorms. We always do our best to clean and sanitize the boat prior to each customer.

There were three of us and another couple ladies on the boat tour. We had plenty of room to social distance and Jessica our Captain was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable about the lake and provided a really lovely trip for us.
