Wonderful morning cruising the bay. Les was very informative and had some interesting stories about his experiences. We had a lot of fun catching some fish as well. Children loved it (and so did we)! Definitely worth doing.

We both had a great time in this heritage couta boat. Plenty to see on the water, we even caught some fish which was a bonus. The weather came good and made the morning very enjoyable.
