Saw lots of dolphins

Fun dolphin watch at the marina. Captain showed us around the inner coastal and knew his stuff. Saw at least a dozen dolphins and had a ball.

My 13 year old son and I were excited to fish on our first visit to Florida, but were disappointed when the weather did not cooperate on the one day we had available. The temperature was unseasonably cold and the water was unusually murky due to recent storms in the area. They warned us that the fishing would be difficult,... More

Had a great time on the sunset cruise even though it was too cloudy to view a sunset that night. We got to see dolphins, some great houses on the water, learn some history, and briefly go out into the gulf. This was also an all you can drink, beer and wine cruise.
