Had a really great time with Mark. Was able to whale watch and spotted some turtles on the way back in. Beautiful views from the water. Would recommend!

Beware, they cancel without a reason (made up lies) once you arrive. Leaves you high and dry without a paddle for the afternoon. Definitely dont take a chance.

Lars was a great tour guide and took us to see some turtles! He was very friendly and fun but made sure we were still very safe. A great relaxing and beautiful day in the water.
