Joy on the Water!

The Guide was very fun and professional. He mapped out the tour but also provided flexibility in the experience according to the weather and participants. The Speed Boat tour included up close, sight seeing opportunities and autonomy that you would not typically find on tours. The speedboat was awesome and we got every opportunity to experience different speeds on the water. It was excitement, fun, and laughter the whole time and there were some beautiful sea birds along our path as well!
