Great way to see the City

From the friendly welcome on the jetty, I can't fault the guys at onaboat. The boat was in great condition and actually pretty nippy. 2 hours gave us just enough time to make it to Herring Island and back, with a quick stop off to explore. As others have said, definitely worth taking drink, snacks and maybe a wireless speaker, and a hat/sunscreen if it's a scorcher!
