This tour is great! It was educational, fun, and entertaining. Being in a boat with no roof allowed us to go through narrow rock arches - a very cool experience. I would definitely recommend this tour company.

So glad you had a great time with us! We like having no roof because as you say, it adds to the excitement on the water. Nothing like squeezing through a narrow cave :-) Thank you for the review

Hi Chris Sorry your experience wasn't the best. I can understand you feeling that way because as we recall, your girlfriend was sea sick. Better luck on your next boat adventure.

Took our daughter aged 4 on the boat and it was a day too remember. Amazing views and lucky enough to see a pack of dolphins. Really recommend trying this out!!!
