We actually went last September, and had a great time! We weren't sure what to expect in the way of just how fast the boat would go, if we would get wet, etc. Those concerns went away as soon as we left Rudee inlet! We...More

We did this last year and it was so totally cool! It was very well organized, and very safe! Bring your camera! You don't go speeding too fast at all, and you might see dolphins on the way.
