We had a great time exploring the Valhalla Sandbar, Tom’s Harbor and a scenic ride back. Unfortunately weather conditions prevented us from snorkeling at the reef, but Steve and Leeda more than made up for it with their charm, attentiveness, interesting conversation and knowledge of the area. Thanks to this Sole crew for a fun and memorable experience for my family!

Captain Steve and Jen created a fun, safe and memorable experience for our entire family! We did the sunset cruise to the sand bar. Highly recommend.
Fantastic excursion with Capt. Chelsea and Leda to see the Hawks Cay 4th of July Fireworks. We had a front row seat and absolutely loved the whole experience. Capt Chelsea, Leda and the entire crew were the key to this wonderful evening. The boat was beautiful, well maintained and first class. I highly recommend using SOLE and especially Capt Chelsea, Leda and the crew!
