We had a great day on the water with Rick and Julie! They were meeting our wishes and told us a lot about the environment. We had an excellent time enjoying ourselves with kayak, noodles and inflatables.

A fantastic trip with Rick and Julie. The food was great as well. They kept us entertained with kayaks, paddle boards and the zodiak.
