Beautiful lunch cruise...a little pricey but fun.
Our 3 hour lunch tour ended up only being 2 hours and 15 minutes. We didn’t get to look for any wildlife. The boat took us straight to lunch and only slowed down 1 time on the way back to tell us about a man made island and a flower. We couldn’t hear him because he was in the front and we were in the middle. No speaker/mic. We went on 1 there a few years ago and it was much, much better. Probably won’t try it again.
