Captain JR and Andy were fantastic! They kept the cruise interesting and informative. They were very knowledgeable about the wildlife and plants. While cruising on the water there was a wonderful breeze. JR and Andy made it a point of getting to know all of the people on the trip and make it personnel for everyone.

We took the entire family for the 12:00 Noon dolphin cruise. What a GREAT time! JR and Andy were great hosts and made it a point to learn the name of every kid while we were out on the water (and give each one a chance to drive the boat). Got a glimpse of a manatee and had several dolphins... More

From the moment we left the pier to the moment we returned, JR and Anja made sure everyone enjoyed this sunset dolphin cruise. JR even let small children help him to steer the boat. Not long into the cruise we saw a manatee. JR's first sighting for a month. During the cruise we saw several dolphins. One moment, a fish... More

Boat left at noon and returned around 2:30. Saw about 3 different groups of Dolphins while out on the boat. Captain JR is very knowledgeable and... More
