another happy Gulf Eco Adventurer

We booked this cruise to celebrate a birthday with the family. We has such a great 3 hours that we are looking at booking another cruise before summer ends. Kurt was friendly, the commentary was really interesting and the scenery was stunning. We highly recommend Gulf Eco Adventures for a fun family outing!
