Scott knows his area and its critters. The equipment is new annually and top quality. An Exhilarating ride...whew.....wow, fun! Dolphin mating season...super show! Scott even had suggestions for additional excursions in the area....most free places. Highly recommended! BTW, he's a very patient man. 😎🌴
