It was a nice boat trip with our captain pointing out interesting things. No dolphins or manatees, but that's nature. We enjoyed the ride.

Take this tour at your own risk. He is a one man operation who is impossible to reach. He took my money never confirmed my reservation and never provided a tour. His ticket agent claims that he called me. He did not

Captain Bob is a lot of fun, doesn't over talk but explains the wildlife and the waterways. We have gone with him 4 times now and plan on doing it again when other family members from up north come to visit.

This was a good tour. The best part about it was that there were many dolphins and the captain slowed the boat and shut the motors down when the dolphins came near the boat so there was a lot of time to view them. We actually saw dolphins mating which I had never seen before and would not have known... More

Nice afternoon for a reasonable cost. Saw lots of dolphins and sea birds. Capt. Bob was knowledgeable, but not particularly entertaining. Still a great way to spend a beautiful day.

Thoroughly enjoyed tour and saw many Dolphins. Can't. Bob is not an outgoing or overly entertaining man, but in our experience certainly not rude as reviewers have said previously. He was even helpful giving us directions to beach and a reserve to see manatee after tour. Boat is clean, new and very nice. Bob does not entertain you with commentary... More

Horrible customer service never answer phone calls. Him and sundance marinas owner LIE!!! The Sundance owner said he tried calling the captain and said there was no answer. Even though the captain said when he spoke to the owner of sundance marina the boat was full even though we had reservations and the boat left early. Then emails my wife... More

Captain Bob doesn't seem to like people very much. Many of his statements were sarcastic and condensending. Though he knew some of the history of the area, and was probably an experienced captain, it was up to us to entertain ourselves on our two hour tour (and ignor his rudeness and sarcasm). He had a limp so I am guessing... More

I see there are many Groupon users that have had problems. This was my first Groupon experience and there were no problems or rude comments from the captain. I did call to reserve the seats, but a lady advised me to use their website (don't click the "Have a groupon" button), just use the regular seat reservation process. I would... More

How dumb. We bought a groupon, booked in advance, got a confirmation online that we had a reservation and everything. It was strange I kept trying to call the office and I never got a person, just a recording, but we had the confirmation, so off we go, drive for 30 minutes, get to the marina 30 min in advance...
