Couldn't find the place, the address they provided was a large marina with several vendors and there was no signage. They left without us and said no refund. I'll gladly remove this negative review when I get my refund.

The check in spot “bite me” shop is right in front of the Harbor house restaurant. We missed it a few times But Terry in store and crew from boat where finally able to point us to the right place. Weather was a little wet on way out but we finally passed the storm and found what we were there for!!!! The Captain and first Mate were Awesome. They were friendly, helpful, and courteous to All guest/passengers and that made the trip a 5. Word of advise to future guests, please remember you aren’t the only guest on the boat and try not to act like it. Luckily most of the guests on our trip were great and we had a good time.
