My husband loved it, but I was always afraid of flipping over. Thrill seekers should love it. The weather was beautiful, but the water a little choppy as we headed out about 9 miles into the Gulf of Mexico. After a quick stop on a sand bar where you can get out and swim if you wish, it was on to a mangrove forest/bird sanctuary where we had to go rather slow, and then it was full throttle back to the marina. Going back the water was calmer and gave us a much smoother ride.
