Welcome to one of the most unique boat tours you will ever go on. The boats are called “Craigcats” and are very safe and easy to drive. They are quick with their 30hp motor and maneuver like a hovercraft which makes them a blast to drive! We like to describe them as “go carts on the water!”

Our guests get the independence of driving their own boat and the security of a monitor (who drives in another boat) who knows the waters and will keep them safe. This is an interactive adventure which seeks wildlife, sea life and beautiful waterways to entertain both young and old alike. The boats are very easy to drive even with inexperienced boaters.

This 2.5 hour adventure is like no other. Historic, interactive, breathtaking and you get to drive your own boat. We go out in small groups to give you a great experience. We also have enough boats to take groups of 28 people out at a time.


One look at our reviews on Trip Advisor will tell you all you need to know about this adventure. Drivers must be 18 years old with a valid driver’s license and passengers can be 5 years old and up.
