We started off with a pontoon boat ride in 4-6 foot waves and it took over 1 hour and 1/2 to get there, it seemed longer because I was very Ill from sea sickness.
The island seems like someone had great dreams that crashed with the housing market. A rundown building at the dock, poorly maintained docks, rustic up-north feel I guess. We walked the short trail to the house and patio area where dinner will be served. There is a small hut for souvenirs, patio, nice house, yard that is poorly maintained with ramshackle fences. Wonderful view of the beach, a nice little stroll down the beach was available. There wasn't a lot of time for exploring, we were running late because of the late arrival.
We opted for the fish, which was very good. The meal was decent considering there is no running water and electricity. Pop and water is included, wine and beer is extra. On the mainland, I would expect to pay maybe $8 for a meal of this fare. 3-4 small pieces of perch, two small boiled red skin potatoes, stir fry cabbage and carrots (was cold when I received them) and a piece of very good, warm bread.
The history told by Bob was interesting, but got a bit long winded.
The ride back was smoother, as the winds died down and the way back is with the waves instead of against them. They did provide blankets if needed if you were chilly. The girls waiting on us were the bright point of the trip. Their smile and desire to serve were over the top. We were served a small piece of cheesecake - no coffee. I don't have a problem with no coffee, but if a website boasts of cheese and wine on the way out and coffee and dessert on the way back, it should be more than what they had.....just saying.
This was to be the highlight of our only weekend away this summer. The price of over $160 for a couple for this adventure is too much.....I hope you go in with eyes open...most other reviews here were misleading
