Had a terrific time on the CraigCat tour with Bailey. Bailey walked us through how to use the boat and before we knew it we were zipping through the backwater up close and personal with frolicking dolphins. I will definitely be back!

The ride is about 3 hours. You can go pretty much as fast as you feel comfortable with. Our guide Bailey let us set our own pace.
