We used the water taxi to spread the ashes of a dear friend into the Coral Sea. Capt. Fozzie was extremely accommodating with finding the right spot and put a GPS reading in without having to be asked. We then continued on the 3 island...More

The only interaction I had with this company was when the skipper followed us to the boat ramp, he tailgates us and was swearing at us because we wouldn't speed up to his satisfaction. You don't have to be a lip reader to know the...More
