Everything was great except we made reservations the day before for 8:30 am and were told the next day that because we were the only ones going at this time we would have to wait till 9:00 am as they only take 4 or more at a time. I understand their point of view but wish someone would have told us in advance that information and that we were the only ones at that time.

We had a great time on the island, finding horses and shells! The crew that brought us back from th island was phenomenal! However, the crew that took us to the island was a different story!!! It was raining and it was obvious that they did not want to be working in the rain. One of them in particular was extremely rude and disrespectful! I am a paying customer and WILL NOT tolerate being treated like that!
