We enjoyed the tour very much. Although we had buss issues and had to cancel the trip half way through what we did see was very enjoyable!! Our driver Ray and guide Andrew were both extremely polite. I miss placed my phone and the dispatcher Lee was very accommodating and checked the busses. She found it and I was able to go by the office and pick it up.

We had the best time with Caden , our very enthusiastic pilot. His love for flying as well as the island was fabulous. We really enjoyed this time on this private island tour. At first we were disappointed, thinking we booked a helicopter, but this flight in the Cessna, 4 seater was so much better. GREAT Job done by Caden!!

We had an amazing experience. The pilot was very knowledgeable and the trip was incredible. He was a lot of fun. The experience couldn’t have been any more outstanding.

This is a fantastic tour! If you don't know where you want to go, this gives you a preview of this beautiful island!

Private tour. Isaac was an amazing pilot. Friendly, thoughtful and fun.
