Captain Bob is outstanding. I went with my 8 year old and we saw more dolphins and gained a lot of knowledge about the wild life and the area and it's history. Excellent value for the money. Will plan to go back and see if there is a sunset tour next year.

Highly recommend! Well worth every penny!! The captain was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the history of Lemon Bay. We saw a ton a dolphins and others beautiful wildlife. Make sure to call and find out what time the boat is running. It typically takes about 2-3 trips a day.

Captain Bruce and Lori were fantastic hosts as we ventured into lemon bay for a boat ride. Within the first 5 mins of the ride we were seeing Dolphins playing in the water! Along the way we also saw many different birds, including a bald eagle and a manatee in the bay! A wonderful way to see all the wildlife!

Cpt. Bruce and the first mate, forgot her name, are very friendly and know a lot about the area and wildlife. We saw plenty or birds and, no lie, about 15 different dolphins. He took us out in the gulf for a loop and the views from his large boat are amazing. It's worth every cent.

We went on the two hour nature cruise with Capt Bruce last June. We called in the morning and booked an afternoon tour for myself and my husband and our three boys, 7, 9, and 15. We were the only ones so we had the boat to ourselves. We brought a cooler of drinks and had a lot of fun.... More

our party of four went on this tour on a warm sunny day with little wind. Capt. Bruce is a character who is very keen on everyone having a good time. He knows his stuff and treated us to all there was to see. Fun time, be sure to take this in. He recommended we try the fish merchant in... More

I got a great tip from a local on this tour, and then saw all of the great reviews here. Captain Bruce gave us the full tour - just the four of us on the pontoon boat, and we enjoyed some great nature views - eagles, herons, white and brown pelicans...and the best of all - a pod of dolphins,...

We took this tour 12 months ago and it was my family's number one thing they wanted to do again this year. Captain Bruce is an excellent guide and really knows the area well. We had 5 separate sightings of dolphins today (groups mainly) and also saw bald eagles, huge white pelicans and the dinosaur looking frigate birds. Captain Bruce... More
