It was a gorgeous day on the water, however we found Captain Bruce did not live up to all the accolades we'd seen written about him. He provided few historical facts or information about wildlife in the area. He did remain in the area where...More

I don't remember exactly how much. I think it was around $30/per and it was a sunset tour. It was about 3 hours or so. Very nice you can bring your own drinks on board ( no glass) captain was great! Worth the trip
