Justin is a great host. He works incredibly hard to make sure you have everything you need. The space is small but after a day or so you'll get used to it. The location is well worth the visit and the wildlife is extraordinary! I'm sure we will be returning! Thanks Justin!

The location was great, the marina was nice. Unfortunately the boat was tired, hot, and not as we expected. If you like primitive camping then this is the experience for you, but I think for the money, I know I was expecting much more than delivered. The a/c could not keep up,…

Response from Justin:
Really disheartening that Dana would leave this review as it’s dishonest & retaliatory for not giving into her demands. The only thing I can get my head around is something else was going on outside of Pirates Life & Dana couldn’t utilize the vessel. Instead of being upfront…
