We did a four-hour inter-island cruise and it was so much fun. Craig knows the history of the area and does a great job of explaining what you're seeing and where we were visiting. Highly recommended for adults.

Went for a two hour tour with Craig. Was very knowledgeable and informative about all the islands. Had lots of time to stop and take in all the wonderful sites of the harbour area! Would go again in a heartbeat and recommend it to everyone!
