The 3-hour trip was great- dress warm.  They have been there since 11/12, and had no classrooms interested in touring the boat this year.  They only return the following year if there is enough interest.  The money collected for the 3-hour tours is used to subsidize student tours during the school week.  If you go on the 3-hour trip, wear layers of clothing and warm boots.
