Relatively efficient but a bit pricy. Gets very busy and crowded so get there early. Sit on the top at the back for the best view and smooth ride.

Slightly more pricey than the competitors, but worth it. We enjoyed the ride to and from the island with ample outdoor seating and an excellent onboard band!
