Took trip with family. Snorkeling and just relaxing under palm trees. The fort was also really interesting. The staff on the bost are great. The food and ride was exciting and something so different. Can not wait to get back and enjoy.

Nice boat. We enjoyed the Fort and the snorkeling. The old pilings by the South Beach and the moat wall were the best spots. We saw a lot of fish and coral growing on the pilings and the wall.
