Captain Jack and Mate Marilyn entertained us as we smoothly cruised seeing beautiful waters, homes and nature. It was a relaxing and very enjoyable evening adventure. It was like spending an evening with old friends.

I loved the boat tour! So peaceful and beautiful. Charming couple! The boat is very comfortable and has covering in the event of rain. The quiet electric boat allows you to get close to the wildlife without disturbing it. I would definitely do it again!!
