2 of us did the hour and half cruise from Pelican Waters to the entrance of Pumicestone Passage. The skipper was very informative regarding the Passage and surrounding areas. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed this short cruise around the waterways of Pelican Waters and the Pumicestone Passage. Our captain and tour guide, Charlie, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a beautiful afternoon and a relaxing 90 minutes. Very reasonably priced at $22. Recommend.
