It was amazing to spend the afternoon with Captain Darin. He was very interesting and knew a lot about the area. Highly recommended!!!! We're even going to the local pub to hear him sing and play guitar tomorrow.

Darin entertained us on his beautiful boat with stories of his life adventures. The sail to New Found Bay was incredible and provided some of the best snorkeling of our trip. The sunset was so beautiful! Just a great experience!
