We did the Speedboat Tour in mid December. We were lucky as we were the only booking so we had Caption Scott to ourselves. It was a fantastic few hours. We were a little anxious as we don't normally do water sports of the high adrenaline order ! We had a safety meeting them meandered out of the harbor past numerous yachts...
As we left the harbor we spotted a group of dolphins, what a start. But once we got outside and put the throttle down WOW !! We felt extremely safe with Captain Scott never more than a 100 yards in front of us, who came back to us at times to fill us in on interesting facts about the bay and some of the mansions and owners in the area.
A great morning out !
