The tour guy was extremely nice. I loved hearing about the history as we sailed. The weather was a bit scary but we managed because just as the tour guy was turning us around the weather cleared and we the passengers convinced him to continue. The servers made sure to keep our drinks replenished they were on top of that. I would definitely recommend this tour. Great experience!!!!

This was an amazing experience for my daughters and I. The staff was professional, polite, full of so much local information and a pleasure to sail with. The boat was clean, comfortable and offered shade from the hot sun. The drinks were refreshing and plentiful. I can’t say enough about this experience. I wish I could do this daily!
