While the trip went as planned, we who had followed the guideline to sign up had to wait for all of these others who showed up even past time to leave including a person who had extreme difficulty in getting on the boat. I had no problem with her coming and taking a while to get on but she and her party should have had to abide by the same rules we followed …to be there one-half hour before sailing. The so-called captain had some lame comments and punchlines but not really good information. His mate Thom gave us a much better picture of Georgetown and the waterways around it. And would it have been nice to talk about shelling, why doing then, what some common shells we may find, and other bits of info. I enjoyed the shelling but it seemed like the mighty dollar worked harder than the customer care.

Went on lighthouse and beach tour with family of four (all adults) and had a great time despite the weather not being so great! The crew is knowledgeable and funny.

A lovely boat ride to North Island! The coat captain provided little nuggets of history along the way as we traveled both ways. He was very informative with a great sense of humor! 1.5 hours were spent walking on the island, which is easy to do when you are aimlessly combing it for random treasures. If you like strolling the beach and natural beaches/waterways, you will really enjoy this tour!
