    Great Trip

    Had a great experience overall. This tour was the highlight of our trip. We had two kids with us on the trip so we weren't able to make the first banana boat group because the kids wanted to get in the water right away. The crew was very accommodating and let us jump on later. There were multiple paddleboards available and we were able to grab one for our family. The crew played great music and kept the energy very high and made the trip very exciting. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
