A great way to spend a day on the water and to learn about the sea life around the Gulf Islands. Highly recommended for a family trip.

Fun afternoon. Our guide (James) was great and very knowledgeable about the area. He managed to keep the whole group engaged and did a great job managing the different skill levels.

Great time exploring on the scooters! Company is somewhat unorganized but everything worked out! Would recommend either the electric bicycle or scooter to tour the island.
