One of the best experience of mine and my family. Staff (John) was very much supportive and explained everything in details. Additionally, he has showed us some places which was not in list. Excellent cruise and I will strongly recommend for gathering an excellent experience. Thanks to the team.

Good interesting. Would have liked the tour quite to say something about the places we passed on the 25minute ride to the oyster leases. Once we got there he was very informative and interesting.
