Fantastic boat with a great crew. We went out for five hours and the scenery was beautiful. Captain Paul really knew the area well and took us to a great spot to swim and meet up with other boats. Yancey made sure we all had drinks and even cooked for us. This was a first class experience that I highly recommend.
