Oh yeah, how fun was this boat trip through the Kemah Boardwalk to Galveston Bay. Plenty of fun and exciting views with the "love boat" crew...

The crew had plenty of energy, and were very entertaining. Just know that you will be very wet by the time the ride is over. Sit toward the front of the boat, it is more dry there.
