Thanks for such a great review!! It was a beautiful evening out there. Yogi the humpback was a ton of fun to watch, even though he made us work for it! Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Great time exploring on the scooters! Company is somewhat unorganized but everything worked out! Would recommend either the electric bicycle or scooter to tour the island.
