Captain Brett was full of interesting information on our boat ride to the island. The boat rise was very relaxing. We left with lots of sand dollars and some beautiful shells. I would highly recommend this for a relaxing start to the day.

Website says to arrive 15 to 20 minutes ahead of time. Parking can be an issue and since there's no bathroom on the boat, you need time to go to the bathroom.
