We did two tours with Captain Bill, a friendly and talkative transplanted American (Rhode Island) who has been on Provo for approximately 20 years. He was well informed about the local history, such tales of the pirates, and could also give details of the occupants in the mega-houses that dot the coast.
The tours leave from Sposdilla Bay, which is off the beaten track and gets you closer to more of the natural and secluded areas of Provo.
The first tour was the Glow Worm tour. For some reason, 2 to 4 days after a full moon, the glow worms mate and create a fantastic light show dancing on the water.
The tour provides you with snacks - the curry dip was fantastic - and drinks, including a potent rum punch, local beer (Turks Head), and soft drinks, all with or without an extra shot of rum!
The start of the tour takes you past huge holiday homes of the rich and richer, out to Turtle Rock, a rock formation off-shore that really does look like a turtle from the right angle. Boating to the glow-worm passion pit, allows you to take in the sunset, and if it is clear, the famous green flash, but we didn't see it.
The boat is comfortable and has an upper viewing deck and washroom facilities, which were needed with the rum punch flowing.
Captain Bill is quite a character and has a ton of stories to tell.
