The whole process from my initial contact to paying the bill was great especially our time on the water. We arrived at the appointed time and boarded with our party of 7. We bought the whole boat and were very glad we did. We started our day by Seal Island trolling with a seal decoy behind the boat. We had an Air Jaws attack and the shark completely cleared the water. RIDICULOUSLY COOL! We [...]
