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

Highly recommend for the first time visitor or long time resident. Captain Bruce always has interesting information about the area. Boat is comfortable and stable. We saw eagles, white pelicans, dolphins and 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

What a cruise! We booked this cruise just out of the mood only for the three of us and had just a great time. Everything was right: Captain Randolph, the boat, the sea, the birds and even the dolphins came quiet close...we really saw a lot of these cude guys! I would really recommend the cruise at that time of... More

We went on the nature cruise with Capt. Bruce and spent 2 hours watching Dolphins, touring the bay and even went out into the gulf. For $30 a head a bargain. A great afternoon, knowledgeable Capt. Highly recommend this tour.

We had a lovely morning with Captain Bruce on lemon bay tours. We saw lots of dolphins and birds and learnt a lot about the area. Would definitely recommend doing this tour if you're in the area.a
