The waters were very choppy and the captain made sure we got there safely and joked with us too. However, it wasn't clear at the beginning when we should start boarding and we were told (a bit strongly) to go back when we approached the boat since they were bringing down someone in a wheelchair. It would help to have a "no entry" with a chain at the entrance to make it less confusing.

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!
