The boat trip to and from the island was pleasant. I am prone to motion sickness, but no problem here. Water was calm. We saw dolphins both ways. It was a beautiful day to walk the beach and look for "treasures". We also enjoyed the tour of the fort. There aren't many places you can visit and enjoy uninhabited beach. We were all adults and took a cooler (no glass) with us. We felt comfortable leaving it at the picnic area while we walked the beach.
