Ann_N, Feb 2022
My friends and I had a delightful time with Rachel and Katie. These women were knowledgeable about the marine life and both had degrees marine biology and environmental studies They were extremely enthusiastic and fun and entertaining. We got to meet some dolphins up close, who decided to show off and gave us quite a show. We saw many birds and wildlife. The length was perfect and we enjoyed it immensely. Fun for all ages. We recommend it highly.
