We loved our guided trip with our guide Tyler. The Craig-cat is a fun boat and a unique way to weave our way around some of the Ten Thousand Islands. We'd have to say the that 'icing on the cake' was when we encountered some...More

At $150/person a tip is a stretch especially with signs staring at you from the Plexi footboards. Also, it would have been nice to know that a coupon is available but only in one brochure if you are lucky to find it.More

We had so much fun on the water. We saw lots of dolphin and had a nice time shelling on a barrier island. My 20+ year old sons had a blast running the boats.

Really enjoyed our afternoon cruising through the waters of the 10,000 islands. Saw many dolphins and seabirds along the way. The CraigCats are a blast. Guide Tyler was informative and attentive. Would recommend.

Conner and Tyler were delightful and a lot of fun. If you’ve never been on a Craigcat you’ve got to do it! I felt it was much better than a jet ski because you sit beside each other and I wasn’ worn out when we...More
