For our jet ski dolphin tour, our guide, Maclane Hardy did an over-the-top, fantastic job guiding us through shell island and surrounding beaches. We got to experience something you may normally only see on your tv: a pod of 40-60 dolphins surrounding us and wanting to play. We got in and could watch and swim as the dolphins, all ages... More

Friendly, helpful, and great value. Second time renting a pontoon from here. Even with pontoon problems they were quick to rescue and bring a new boat. Also, bad weather hit and they called us to reschedule. Highly recommend. We'll be back!!

Our guide Colt suggested we head back in and that we could do the tour the next day. It was pouring by the time we got back to... More

Captain Loopy made this trip so much fun. He was not just a great captain, but also a great guide full of good spirits, humor, and professionalism. Ask for him by name! We saw a few dolphins, and I felt like a kid again when I saw them. I had taken a ferry over to "shell island" earlier that week,... More

Our Captain, Rob Darley, gave us an exceptional dolphin tour. Snorkeling among the dolphins was an amazing experience! Captain Rob also made sure that we had all the photo ops possible. We plan to arrange to have the same captain next year. We had such a wonderful time! Thanks Captain Rob!!!
