This was so much fun!... - This was so much fun! Captain Scott ended up giving us a private tour because others had cancelled. He is very knowledgeable and gives very good instructions. We had a great time and got to hear some fun stories about the area. If you take this tour, request Captain Scott, he is the best!

FUN - This was such an exciting, fun activity. We had a great time. I would highly recommend the speedboat tour. Captain Scott was the man! What a great fun guy! He went over all safety rules and made sure we felt comfortable. You will not be disappointed. Definitely doing it again when we come back and maybe do the pontoon.

Didn’t get to experience due to choppy weather - Due to inclement weather conditions I was unable to complete my adventure. Had I been able to experience the speed boats, then I would have more to say.
