    Excellent way to spend a few hours

    We booked a half day pontoon boat for our family of 8. The boat was spacious and perfect for us. We hired some rods and a crab pot - definitely go for the crab pot, as we didn't have any luck with fishing but managed to catch 3 crabs (which turned out to be worth $100 each when we went to a seafood restaurant a couple of days later). The boat felt safe and the inlet was pleasant. Staff was helpful and friendly. One other recommendation would be to get insect repellent.

    Great trip, excellent service

    Got upgraded for a bigger boat for free. 5ppl. The workers were really friendly and explain everything in detail. The only thing I regret is that I didn't book the boat for a whole day. 4hours were not enough!!! Great experience and would love to do it again.
