I was planning to rent a boat to cruise around, but this worked out better. It was good to be able to follow someone who knows the water and not have to worry about shallow areas. Captain Scott did a great job leading us, and was also a nice person to get to know. He looks like a sea captain... More

Very great experience. Coming from the islands I'm used to seeing tourists pay for just a half hour use of a single jet ski what you get here for 2 full hours of use of a Speedboat. Yes it is guided and you follow the leader but having personal experience running aground and breaking down on the water trust me... More

It was great to take a spin around the bay and see the area from the water. We really enjoyed looking at beautiful homes and boats. The little two seater boats have pep and it is reassuring to have a guide would knows the waters and boat safety. The guys in our group liked driving the boats while the girls... More

Cruised around Gulfport & Tierra Verde with one other couple in a boat & our guide. Boats were well cared for & the entire trip was a blast. Would easily recommend to any visitor to the area and to any local that never gets a chance out on our beautiful waters ....

The owner was very nice and friendly. He gave us a good briefing on how to boat safely before getting in the water in an easy to understand way. Boats went nice and fast. Captain Scott was very nice too and made sure we were good. We'll worth it. Would do it again.

Thank Angel N
