From Charter Guest February 2017
"We had a great time. Captain Nick and crew were wonderful, professional and fun. The food anddrinks were unbelievable! We enjoyed sailing, snorkeling, diving and relaxing. La Forza is in great shape, as pictured. One day we went into the ocean past Bitter End and came back. It was fun watching how the boat performed."
