I like to take guests down to the harbor to see all the fishing boats and tour boats as they come and go. Sometimes we see huge marlin or Ono Or Ahi being brought in.

Cute little harbor that needed to be expanded a decade ago. I hope that there are future plans to expand or build another harbor. It’s always fun to go down in the afternoon and watch the charter boats come in and weigh the large fish.

We went on a snorkeling trip with our 14 year old daughter. They went over the basic procedures and we were able to swim right next to a group of spinner dolphins. We didn't really see any tropical fish. The marina was easy to find.
