I didn't ask Captain Eddie to take any pics but I'm sure he would have had I asked him. You will have to bring your own camera though.

Thank you for your question. For the sake of a more meaningful experience, we use 6-passenger boats. Should your party be of more than 6, we will send up to 5 boats out side by side.
