The guides were very helpful, enlightening about the places we visited and generally friendly. The group lunch was very quiet, savoring the beautifully crafted Lobster. I really enjoyed the Fruit Festival at the end. I think they've all been in Congratulations.

probably not it can get a bit choppy depending on weather of course but not for long and not a lot , it depends how bad she gets and how quickly, it’s a wooden boat so can wave a bit , not much though.
