A memorable experience. Professional carrier in every respects. Kind, thoughtful and a experienced care. Avalon is a charming village in every respects. You can label it in any manner you wish from New England viillage to trashy , beachie, touristo, garish and quaint and be delighted in every opinon. Worth a second visit in the future for us. Restaurant selectiion is terrific. We ate at the Bluewater Avalon and can only laud the food, service and price. Fun trip is saying the least!

Quick and easy boarding. The captain slowed down when we encountered a large pod of dolphins. He gave us lots of photo ops!!!
Reasonable price from DP...Will definitely travel this way again.

It was my first time there and I had a ball. Went with my husband and met up with his family there and we had so much fun. We rented a golf cart and toodled around on Sat. I loved seeing more of the Island. Can't wait to go back again.
