Took a trip with our boys on a beautiful day. Saw a lot of dolphins along the way, snorkled the ruins, found shells, and fed the gulls on the way back in. They even let my boys drive for a while which they loved. Great crew!

The catamaran was clean and there was lots of sitting room. We saw several dolphins on the way back to the dock!!! An... More
