Took the wife as we enjoy boat trips. Wasn't disappointed as Ross the skipper was a great guide, who pointed out all the wildlife as well as giving a excellent tip on how to swat horse flies.

We enjoyed our trip very much and saw and learned a lot about the area from Ross. However, we would like to apologise for the dog and his squeaky toy.
