Our trip was filled with interesting history and beautiful sights. Captian Carlton shared his extensive knowledge and lore of the islands at a leisurely pace. He wasn't satisfied until he found ponies to watch right at the waters edge.

Our captain was knowledgeable and fun for the sunset cruise. He was intent on showing us what we wanted to see -- and didn't disappoint. He took extra pains to take the pontoon boat into different inlets so we could get a good look at...More
