Private Boat Tours: Sightseeing Boat Tours & Cabana Boat Tours

Deciding between a day or sunset tour is a matter of personal preference, as both offer equally stunning views. During the day, you can enjoy the sparkling waters.

“I think we’ve been visiting for at least 15 years before they were even in this location. Good location, with a nearby spot under the bridge with good fish. But for us the guided trips have been the best. I honestly think our captain was more excited to catch the fish than we were. Very prepared and never a bad day on the water. The store itself has everything we’ve needed plus good advice on where to go. The restaurant there is also a nice bonus.”
