I’d say we spent 90 minutes on the water. The weather was a little rough but it had little impact on the tour. Guide was knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Great was to spend an afternoon.

Christian was another relative of the Bounty Survivors. The 5 of us gathered at 2 PM but the surf and tide were very strong, even in the bay. Because he did not want to disappoint us Christian rearranged his day and with our agreement postponed...More
