Best way to fish up the estuaries. No boat license needed made it an easy option to take the family fishing. The owners were friendly and made sure we were well equipped with bait and rods. Would definitely do again.

Woman who we rented from was very friendly and we really enjoyed being able to cruise around ourselves instead of being on a big boat with a lot of people.
