    Hosted a joint Bachelor/Bachelorette party and we had an absolute blast! Huge shoutout to Captain Marcos who took good care of us and made sure we found some good spots despite a few pockets of bad weather. Also, a special thank you to Captain Randy and his staff for being flexible and extending some kindness to us as we had some unexpected changes pop up last minute. Overall, experience of a lifetime and will certainly book another ride in the future. 10/10 RECOMMEND 😜
