I have been on this tour about 5 times accompanying out of town visitors and always find it delightful...each tour is different depending on the time of day, tides and weather; however, each tour has been unique and interesting. Well worth the money...

If the weather is poor does the boat have cover to protect the guests from rain?
12 April 2017|
Answer
Response from DeceptionP | Property representative |
