What a great time we had! Went with my family a few days ago, and booked tickets through the headout app. It is easy to access and I am horrible with technology, so that’s saying something. We got tickets seamlessly and showed the e-tickets at the deck. Simple procedure. The ride was short but sweet. Saw many places on the way but couldn’t take nice pictures because it was too dark. The flash couldn’t capture the pictures either. But it was a nice way to spend some quality time with the family.
The view is absolutely stunning. Left me and my wife wanting to build a house on the boat (ha-ha). Recommend for everyone. Also, it is a fun little addition to your honeymoon. We got our tickets from an online portal and loved the service. Thanks.
