Captain Patrick and Meredith were wonderful! The Catamaran was much nicer than I anticipated and my friends and I all fit comfortably! We went out for a half day for my bachelorette party and he took us out on the open water, to a sandbar where we were able to get in the water and swim. There was also a food boat we were able to order snacks from! He then ended our tour in a mangrove area where we were able to paddle board and kayak. He had tons of water and snacks for us too! 10/10 FABULOUS TIME!

Very good activity. We had Champagne as soon as we arrived and were able to drink during the flight. The flight was amazing. We flew over all of Miami then the sea and then back to Miami with the pilot who was giving us the aerial tour of the site! A real joy. Small bonus I had chosen the 7 p.m. schedule and so we could see the sunset from the sky! To do again. The only constraint is the trip from the hotel to the site at our expense and difficult at peak times.

Awesome ride a little on the expensive side with all the deposits would make it hard for some who can’t afford all that and fees

Me comprometí con mi novia en el vuelo y todo fue Excelente, el piloto y el equipo fue super amable. Super recomendado.

It was great, Patrick was a great host, everything perfect !
