From our guest book, one of our customers said:
“Wow! what an incredible experience! The expertise and patience & learned wisdom of Skipper Dave was all and much more than we had anticipated. The beautiful South Shore was explored to it’s best under the tutilage of Dave. We have gained such great skills, knowledge, appreciation – understanding of the sea. Thank you so much.”
