Nick did a great job of reviewing all the safety aspects of the craigcats before we started the engine. The tour was a blast! The wildlife was beautiful, the boats were fun to drive, and Nick was very informative about the area!!

One person can ride with the guide on his boat. It is the lead boat. During the trip it is possible to switch around so everyone can drive the boat if they are of age.
