Very enjoyable trip. Very friendly, knowledgeable operators. We had a beautiful weather day, but tides were relatively low that day so the visible effect of the water flow was somewhat underwhelming. Still it was a very enjoyable trip with good company and great scenery.More

Thanks for the review. As noted, not all tides are the same if seeing the dramatic tidal action is one of the main reasons to join us. It is best for that to go on one of the larger tide days. Hard to do if...More

Hi Erica, we could do that if the dog is used to travel on boats which will at times be at high speeds to get out to the destination. It would also have to be arranged as a private tour as some folks don't like dogs.
