We visited island many times. We came to see baseball and soccer games a lot of times. And this with visiting friends we got on the Pride. So pleasant and interesting on the hot summer evening.

We go there every summer or fall to enjoy the ride. We especially enjoy the dinner cruises or mystery night cruises. They are a lot of fun and you get to meet some great people.
