This is the third year in a row that my daughter and I have taken a tour with Coastal Explorations. Always a great trip, with informative guides and great things to see. We will be back next year.

We had a wonderful time with Hadley on our excursion. Hadley was very knowledgable about the history of the area. She educated us on the wildlife as well. Hadley was a very fun tour guide and I recommend this trip for everyone.
