The boat was very comfortable if a tad cold a the day was chilly. The crew handed out sou westers, but warm clothes were needed. Toured around the Bay of Fires with commentary, interesting rocks and some sea life. Be warned - open boat.

Total attention to safety and a running commentary on the local sea-life and birds plus all the beaches and bays in the Bay of Fires area. Most enjoyable and value for money.

We do have a toilet, however it is a small porta toilet and located under our steering column. Not the most luxurious of amenities, but there for use if needed. Cheers Alisha
