We did this years ago too. The tour is nice and long, makes it worth every dime. We even got rained on and it was still a blast.

Super fun tour! Karie gave a great tour (over 20+ miles) while keeping us safe, providing information about the surrounding areas and making sure we got to have a blast on the water!! Would recommend everyone get out there and have some fun!!

Speed boating throughout the water was the best part of my trip. Strongly recommend it if you like action water sporting. Very safe as well.
