#1. I appreciate that on the website it tells you about the flat rate parking lot that is just behind the bayside marketplace, and a very short walk to the dock where you'll be taking off from. (as of 3/2013, $5weekday/ $10weekend)
I am amused that they tell you to come an hour before you are supposed to leave. My departure time was noon, and I totally didn't need to come at 11am. You could show up 5 minutes before departure and still be fine. No one showed up late, so I can't attest to the boat leaving late to wait for late passengers.
It was extra great to have access to snorkeling gear, which makes it easier to dive 8 ft down to the man-made coral reef in front of south beach.
It was convenient to have beer and wine for sale during the trip.
The crew was sweet, and looked out for everyone.
It's easy to have a good time on this trip.
