Let me just say that I don't sit and write reviews so this will be a strange experience, and probably an odd read but bare with me! So the boat trip......if you're in the area, do it! The guys who run the trip are friendly, helpful, funny and knowledgeable of the area. They show you the beautiful sights, explain the... More

My wife and I took a Speedboat Adventure tour. Fantastic. Captain Scott did a great job of keeping us together. HIs narration was right on. We saw the various sights from the water...quite unique. Driving the boat was exhilarating!! WE EVEN SAW DOLPHINS...A FEW FEET AWAY FROM US! Boating experience is NOT necessary. We own a home on Tierra Verde... More
