They provide (or sell, rather) warm drinks for you to enjoy while you're looking out over the bay and learning about local history. A great afternoon. Also we saw a rat under the dock while we were boarding--bonus wildlife!!
it is a nice thing to do on a beautiful day. It is known for the smallest bar. We paid for 75 minutes and got about 60. I thought our guide was boring and disinterested in talking about the island. What he did talk about was interesting. The view is beautiful.
If you are visiting at the right time of year (March or April 'til mid October) this is a delightful way to learn a bit of Eureka/Humboldt Bay history and just get out on the water for an hour or so. Keep track of their special events.
You'll get a narrated tour of Humboldt/ Eureka bay. An interpretive cruise, covering much of the rich history of our community. You can bring, or buy a beverage, and enjoy the ride. Bring a warm coat as it sometimes gets breezy on the water.

Have ridden several times. If the weather is nice the views are spectacular. Staff is always informative and pleasant. Highly recommend when visiting Eureka. The cocktail cruise is very nice evening cruise with a small onboard full service bar.
I had lived here for almost 6 years, heard about this, but never took advantage. This is the coolest thing ever, officially has the "smallest bar in California" onboard this little vessel. Take advantage of this really awesome, and fairly cheap, chance to take a really fun cocktail cruise around the beautiful bay.
A fun fact filled Humboldt Bay Tour on comfortable historic small cruise ship with very knowledgeable skipper and crew. Learned about the long history of area that includes the lumber, fishing and wildlife views
