We took a two hour cruise out of Robbie's. Would recommend that you book for a least two hours so you can explore around the area. We saw many birds and some unusual stingrays. But our favorite part was accessing Samantha's deep knowledge of the area, her expert understanding of the ecosystems we were traveling through and her obvious love... More

Booked in with Captain Samantha for a two hour tour starting Robbie's Marina at Mile 77 on Lower Matecumbe Key using her flatboat powered by a 150 hp Yamaha which got us around quickly from activity area to next point of interest. We saw almost every bird life possible including ospreys, pelicans, cormorants, herons and many others especially the nesting... More

My husband and I had snorkeled a couple times before - Cancun and Bermuda- so I thought we should try it here too. Our hotel booked us two hours with Captain Sam. The day before our trip it was a bit windy, so she called to suggest rescheduling our trip for the afternoon to allow conditions to improve. We agreed.... More

We had the most wonderful and informative 2 hour trip. It was incredibly special and Captain Samantha was so personable and knowledgable about the wildlife and habitat of the Keys. We saw Ospreys up close ,pelicans nesting, the mangroves and the cherry on the icing was at the end of the trip when we saw a crocodile and a manatee.... More

Booked a private 2hr sunset tour from 4-6pm. Brought our own beer for which she had a cooler with ice. Capt. Sam was very experienced and knowledgable about the local flora and fauna. She was also fantastic with the kids and had a DSLR which she took pics with and offered to send. Saw lots of birds, dolphins which chased... More

Two hour trip with Captain Sam. Very friendly and knowledgable. We saw more above the water than below but still worth every penny of £150 /$230. Inc tip. Great to have the boat to ourselves and looking forward to receiving the pictures Captain Sam took on her new camera, by email. Getting close to the Ospreys was the highlight although... More

We went on a 3 hour Eco tour with Captain Samantha around Islamorada. She was knowledgable and interesting and obviously loved her job (and who wouldn't?!) we went as a couple and found the trip really relaxing and it was great to see the wildlife up close and learn more about it from Samantha. The list of birds and other... More

We spent two hours out with Captain Sam back in November. It was a great way to get to know and understand the keys eco system. We didn't see any marine mammals but saw a nursing shark, crocodile and plenty of interesting birds. Sam's informative tour passed any moments when there wasn't a huge amount to see. Well worth it

My wife, 10yo son and I had a great morning on Capt Sam's Eco tour. Beautiful scenery in the mangroves and out on the open water. We saw numerous birds of which Sam was very knowledgeable, and we all really enjoyed when Sam "played" with the dolphins- they catch the boat's wake and ride the waves. Got a taste for... More

Samantha was an excellent tour guide, guiding us through mangrove islands, showing us native birds, flora, and marine life in an easygoing but educational manner. The history of the area is more fascinating than I ever knew, and Samantha fills you in on it all personably and passionately. You can learn all about the area, snorkel, or just enjoy the... More
