We are locals, had people in from out of town. Well run operation, fun experience. Captain Tony was great, the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor are well deserved. No boating experience required!

We rented two boats for two adults and three kids. The experience was wonderful! Kids had a lot of fun as we were allowed to throttle the boat to may be around 25 mph speeds where those speeds were allowed. The tour guide was well informed and knew the surrounding areas very well. We witnessed dolphins at play and a... More

Had a great time cruising in these super fast speed boats. Captain Scott is such a fun tour guide. We even saw dolphins on our tour! make sure you bring a waterproof camera it can get pretty wet if the water is a bit choppy. Definitely a fun adventure!

Staff is great, very personable. We enjoyed driving the boats and seeing the marine life, high dollar houses. The only "down" is based on advertising we were expecting the boats to be fast. Understand why it is best not to take chance on inexperienced boaters with fast boats but they really should advertise that these are just small boats, fun... More
