We took the "glass bottom" boat cruise to Flowerpot Island. It was very misleading as the glass bottom part of the boat was one square around the middle so only the seats around it (maybe 12 seats of maybe 60 or more on the refurbished...More

Took a cruise to Flowerpot Island during Canada Day weekend - probably was our first mistake. The boat seemed a bit older, didn't feel very clean, and was absolutely packed. I know these cruises need to pack on a lot of people to make money,...More

Typically booking the day before is a great idea. If you can book earlier, please try to do so. We would love for you to have first choice of the cruise you would like!
