Although the weather was chilly, rainy, and the seas were a bit churned up, this was a fun sail. The bay is calm, and the visibility really good. Saw dozens of fish, and others in our group saw a small ray. They have adult drinks for purchase and complimentary juices, fresh

What a DAY! Genuinely impressed by Captain Morgan and his crew. They were friendly, very informative and took great care of us. My wife is pregnant and they even brought special lunch options for her. The whole experience was very convenient getting there and on the boat.
