We HIGHLY Recommend Kirk. He was extremely responsive to our desires and needs. He customized the tour for us. Unfortunately one person in our party had broken their ankle 2 weeks prior to our vacation, but Kirk handled the additional responsibility and equipment like a pro. He is informed, fun and pleasant. He answered every question regarding the island and made it so fun! Thank you Kirk!
