Wee had a great time out on the water with the speed boats. Dustin our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw all sorts of marine wildlife, and the boats were surprisingly quick for being small. Would recommend to a friend for sure!

We are headed down June 1st, we are responsible adults, but I am a bit scared of hitting a wake and overturning. Can anyone ease my mind, please? Also: Is this a completely guided tour that experienced staff goes out to tag along to be sure we are all safe within the boundaries of the beautiful Gulf? Looking forward.
