Really enjoyed the houseboat experience as well as the challenge of navigation at low tide. Boat was extremely well equipped and very comfortable and enjoyed a good night's sleep on the boat.

We had an amazing time and the routes to follow were clearly marked to the point where it was difficult to go off course, the boat was sufficient for two people - wouldn't recommend more than that. was truly relaxing
