Mother's Day is this weekend and if you haven't made plans yet, you might want to consider treating mom to a day out on the water.

Argosy Cruises still has room on its four cruises on Sunday. There is a brunch cruise, a cruise to Blake Island where you can enjoy a Salmon Bake, a dinner cruise and a Murder Mystery dinner cruise.
