Great experience

It was a lot of fun and everything went well. We had a 16 man boat, this is also good with children, if you want it a bit wilder you should book a smaller boat. We were driven to the dock with a beautiful old school bus, which came and then picked it up at the dock. Therefore we could leave our things (eg dry clothes for afterwards, etc.) on the bus. In the end, nothing was dry :-)).

Loved it!!!

Corey was our guide and he did a great job. He was knowledgable and fun! But also really knew what he was doing and we felt safe.

The guide never stopped talking, yammering about nothing at all, telling inane jokes, asking dumb questions. It spoils an otherwise great trip.
