Disappointing

Short in distance, did not go very far in 45 minutes. Was expecting to see more sights as it was a tour. Thought it was an expensive excursion for what is was. This said the captain and our guide were very fun.

Loved the ride, but this request has become intrusive. The demand for a longer response makes me want to reduce my rating. It now feels like work, the very thing I was hoping to escape. Please reduce the harassment.
