    We did not have a good experience. The seas were very rough, we got sea sick, completely drenched and my husband fell out of his wheelchair when the boat hit a big wave at about mile 13 or 14. He was stayed seated on the floor of the boat as we attempted to continue out. After about 1.5 hours, we were less than 20 miles out, we decided to ask the captain to turn around.

    Great trip with James (AKA Grandpa) seas were a little rough but that's too be expected. Had a Member of our group get very ill and not only was James's first thought his safety but we cut our trip short and he even discounted the fees. Very thankful and will use them again. I can't put the review in and not mention Daryl, his mate, as well. To notch crew!!
