    There are a few outlets spread out amongst the booths, in case you need to charge your electronic devices.

    For couples who want to sit at the booths inside, but don't want to sit with awkward strangers, there are three tables toward the front that have booth seats on one side.

    Bring a light jacket and sunblock if you plan to sit outside. Don't bother doing your hair before getting on the boat--the wind will just jack it up anyway :)

    If it's rough, sitting outside on the back is the best. If you go up to the second level, sit on the life jackets cases. They have a cushioned lid.

    Remember the bar on the boat is cash only.

    They'll tell you standby starts at 7am, but all the people who get on via standby start lining up way before. We got there around 6:30am and barely made the cut (even on a rainy weekend)!
