Great trip for all ages

This was a great trip. Staff were friendly. We learned about about the area. There was plenty of space and the boat was comfortable. However, next time we come to Myrtle Beach, we'll have more family. Since they do private parties for a few as 6, next time we'll book a private tour. This is a great trip for people of all ages.
