We came specailly from Orlando for the 3 pm boat tour. We booked a month in advance directly on their web site. When we showed up they told us we don't do 3 pm boat tours in the summer. Nowbody took the effort to contact us by mail in advance.

This was a slow boat ride that hugged the cost of Cape Canaveral & Cocoa Beach for the main purpose of advertising their business!! Have been on... More
