We did a guided fishing excursion with Captain Mark and then the restaurant staff cooked our fish for lunch after. Both were exceptional!

Jet ski is $75 for 30 minutes. Book on line at our home page. When you come in to ride ask Capt. Ron if you can have 10 extra minutes free! Tell him you saw us on Trip Advisor!!
