Capt. Nick gave us an outstanding guided tour. Saw dolphins feeding with their young.! We rode the waves and had the experience of driving the Craig Cat boats. We would highly recommend going on this adventure.

He sent them to my email thru Drop box. They only hold them for 30 days. Download drop box app and see if they are there. Otherwise call the backwater main number and see if they can help

One person can ride with the guide on his boat. It is the lead boat. During the trip it is possible to switch around so everyone can drive the boat if they are of age.
