This was my second time taking the Thimbal Island boat tour. Both were terrific. This time we went on Matt's Boat. If you cannot sit in the back upstairs, wait for the next tour.

These guys are awesome. I have been on the 45 minute public cruise a few times and a couple of 2.5 hour private ones. Great time every time! Captains are fun and knowledgeable(and funny). Don't hesitate to take advantage of this local gem.

The Sea Mist. It was larger than the other one that was docked there. Not sure what the name of the boat was. But the larger ship had a bathroom which was very nice especially because it was an hour ride.
