We had such a great time exploring on this self tour! It ended up being the best part of our trip! Got to see local gems we never would have experienced and had a lot of fun driving around. Friendly, easy and informative. Would definitely do another route if we came back. Thank you!!

We enjoyed the historical harbor tour early one day at 10:30 which meant we had calm water and no afternoon wind. The tour is well organized with interesting information about both the past as well as the vital green efforts of the present.

Trip was great, very informative, the boat is very very nice too. Ignore the details on your booking about the meeting point. This was completely wrong and could have meant we missed our booking. Simply look for the Spido boats.

Very enjoyable, able to sit on top decks in the open or below out of the wind. Nice bar for snacks and drinks.

Highly recommend. Very educative and provides a close up of how a major port works.
