Glad you enjoyed your time out with Laurie, the Tiki Tour is a great way to head out & discover some amazing views. The brownie certainly gets a few mentions in reviews, pretty tasty!

Thank you, what a great description of our Tiki Tour! It's an ideal trip for those just wanting to get out & kayak at a relaxed pace, followed by the return journey in our water taxi. The views from Stevenson's Island are stunning, good to hear Tyler escorted you to the view point. Thanks for the recommendations & joining us on such a beautiful day on the lake.
