Captain Steve took us out on the river it was beautiful. He taught us so much about the area. We stopped and looked for shells and swam while we were there we were able to see dolphins. It was so much fun!

Certainly a bathing suit, but bring lots of sunscreen and a hat! We did not have a chance to get out of the kayak on our trip, but depending on the direction you go you may have the opportunity.

It's our off season but if we are around and the weather is nice I'm sure we could arrange something. What type of tour are you looking to do? How many people? Best way to communicate if via email. flipperfinders gmail
