I'd forgotten how great it was to be out on the water and the Deep Cove crew made it even more fun. Sunshine, whiffling water, friendly, knowledgeable guides and ground crew, giant sandwiches and donuts . . . what's not to luv.

Great day on the water! Well worth the cost and a snack was included, a Honey Doughnut :) Josh was a great guide and the weather was amazing. If it sunny on the day of your tour, bring a hat.
