Our sailor Luis was amazing and so friendly! Unfortunately the day I originally booked this trip for, it was raining, but Luis let us come back the next day. Definatley a beautiful experience and worth the money. As well as the beautiful sunset, we also were lucky enough to spot an Eagle amongst the mud banks.
