Captain Butch was on time! And talked about the island, things we needed to know. At pick up time, Carolyn helped him, what a sweetheart. Clean boat, easy on and off, very punctual! Reasonably priced!

Took a ride to beat the traffic on the beach and it was so worth it. Sure beats sitting in traffic and it is not that pricey.
