This was a two hour informative boat cruise. Very glad we took the trip. The naturalist, Tom, lent a humorous and enlightening narrative of the area.

Needed to fill in a few hours and our lighthouse tour cancelled because of windy conditions. Took the nature cruise, and enjoyed it. Easy people to deal with, and very helpful. Tour was nice and we saw wildlife as we cruised around Frenchman's bay.
