The captain was great, with lots of good info about the area. It was a perfect 30 minute ride and then 2 hours of free time to roam the beach and swim as we pleased.

Our boats are 30ft century boats with twin Honda 250s and are very stable while running. Been in business for 22 years and seasickness has never been part of any of our trips.
