My husband and I just got back from our anniversary trip. Everything was stellar. Neal was fantastic at the beginning of our reservation and the trip was totally customized for us. We had a three day two night trip that covered four islands . Britta and Kiah were our guides. Britta is like a ball of sunshine and Kiah was super knowledgeable. Food was outstanding and the scenery can’t be beat. Equipment was well-used but reliable and functional. I would go again.
