Family enjoyed the ride. Got caught in the rain on the return. parked under the overpass. not great for me personally because I wear hearing aides and sat in the back section near the motor. Maybe a small speaker / microphone system would help. Overall good experience for the group..

We turned up on short notice and thankfully Captain Darryl had not left yet and we managed to sort out payment with his office and jump straight on board. Capt Darryl was very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area and wildlife etc and the enthusiasm came across with how he explained things and took time in areas to explain the background. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the company and would definitely recommend the tour to anyone with a bit of time to spare and wanting to know a little more of the Winter Haven area. The cold water and sun cream were very welcome in the second hour! Hope to see you again soon.
