We had an amazing time on Big Glen. The staff were wonderful. The boat was comfortable and clean. The water was spectacular - parallel to the Caribbean. We will be back 👍

We had a great time with a 2, 9, and 11 year old cruising around the lakes. Super friendly and courteous staff. Yes they were all teenagers, but hard-working and attentive. Very knowledgeable. Beautiful 2 hour pontoon ride with family.
