On July 22 my wife and I booked the sunset cruise with Tidewater Tours along with several other guest. The tour guide was full of all kinds of information about cedar key history and the industries that have come and gone. We saw many dolphins, sea rays, sharks and other marine life. Cruised by the island light house and enjoyed... More

Wonderful trip and so informative! Captain was able to get dolphins to follow the wake of the boat, what a thrill to see them so close. Found sand dollars, saw lots of birds and just enjoyed the ride. We highly recommend this tour!

We had a great time during our island tour with Jenny (sp). She was full of knowledge of the wildlife and history of the island around Cedar Key. She even was able to entice some dolfins to swimn along our boat and play on the wake of the boat. Great experience and a great value.

The tour and crew were great. This is one trip my 92 year old mother wanted to take. Although her mobility is not great, the crew went out of their way to make sure she got on and off the boat safely and easily. We found the tour interesting, fun and informative. Although there were storms brewing all around us,... More

I recently read a review left on here from some one else about their ride on the 4th of July, and I have to intensely disagree with them, I was on the tour that very same day, and I must say that Capt. Fred was very informative to all of us, his presentation of the history of the islands, as... More

We drove to Cedar Key for the fourth of July weekend. One of the main things we wanted to do was take Tidewater Tours to Seahorse Key on July 5th for the lighthouse tour and to spend time on the beach there. I called a week prior to find out about the boat trip over to that island. I was... More

Took the island tour with my granddaughter and had a blast! It was her first boating adventure and we were fortunate enough to witness the shark birth, incredible!! Capn' Mike and Miss Connie were great. One of the best times I've ever had on the water, can't wait to get back there!! :-)

My grand-nephews and I spent most of one day cruising in Gulf waters around Cedar Key in a pontoon boat rented from Captain Doug. He'd recently bought a powerful new motor for the boat. When idling, it sounded like a kitten. When running, it responded beautifully. The Tidewater staff briefed us, supplied flotation devices and a "water map" and welcomed... More

We went on a boat ride with TideWater Tours - Connie and Mike - and was told we would see birds, dolphins, islands and such - first time we have ever seen this! Captain Mike saw something in the water - thought it was dolphins, fish fighting or having sex, thinking there were 3 (Connie said it's an orgy) and... More

On our 1st trip to Cedar Key, we went on boat around Seahorse and Atsenie Otie Island. Beautiful day, met some awesome people and captain knew all the history of the area. We especially enjoyed the 1st mates {photo attached}. We plan to come back when the lighthouse is open. Loved all the different types of birds!
