Captain did a great job! Very much liked the pink lady 2. Even though it was windy the boat was very steady and stable, really enjoyed seeing seals, bald eagles and lighthouses. 1.25 hrs just the right amount of time for a 3 year old.

Because of beeing later in the season we did not get to see any whales up close, but it was still a great time out on the ocean.
