The large yachts coming and going were a sight to see.One of them actually had a wedding on it. Sitting outside, sipping a cocktail and just watching the water at night was a delight.

We took a fun and interesting boat ride to see the expensive homes and yachts in the area. It was a great way to learn about the area and it was fun to see how the other half lives.

Great relaxing experience. The boat operators were funny, keeping the kids entertained, and it was so relaxing. I think I might have fallen asleep. It was great!

Very interesting and good value - boats don't always run to schedule, beware! Acts as an excellent way to get around and see some quite amazing boats and houses
