Hello, I am looking for something my 74 year old Mom and my 8 year old daughter can do. Do you feel this is a good tour? Were the kids entertained for the day and was the ride short? THanks in advance.

Hello, I would like to hitch a ride to Jamaica from South Florida on a boat, then come back a week or two later. Is this something you can assist with? I can't fly. I can take a cruise with Carnival or what not, but I don't like the dates of travel and I want to spend more than half a day in Jamaica.
