Wonderful time. A bit nervous about it to be honest but it was safe, fun, and we were able to see the shore line and sea life. Great company and staff.

Very fun even though the dry suit makes you feel like a Sumo Wrestler. At least it keeps you warm and dry. Great driver and great naturalist explaining what we were seeing. Life can't get better than this.
