It was pretty cold but we still had an absolute blast. He even brought his dog along, Bella, which was an added bonus! I would not only... More

Amazing boat trip! Really fun adventure with family in town visiting. Exploring Boneyard Beach was really cool and our guide, Robert, was so knowledgeable and nice and interestingly. Will definitely be back!

We did the Dolphin sunset cruise on Black Friday and it was a full boat - had some selfish grumpy guests complaining about sitting together even though they came in late - but, crew handled it smoothly. We saw a lot of dolphins and the guide really knew his stuff and provided a lot of information that was informative. My... More

My family and I went on the dolphin discovery sunset trip and had an amazing time! We saw tons of dolphins and loved wandering around Capers Island. John and Mike (captain and guide) were knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and engaging. This was the highlight of my vacation!!!

I've done this trip twice now with my fourth graders and we love it every year! I have had the privilege of having Mike as our tour guide both years, and this year, John was our captain. Both of these guides did a fabulous job at engaging the students and the parents! They answered every question we had with interest... More

We took the Capers Island tour. Mike was our tour guide-he was fabulous. Extremely knowledeable and engaged. Our kids loved it!! Multiple science lessons all tied into a 3 hour tour. Now I want to go again when we are at the beach, taking nieces and nephews. Thanks so much!!

We recently took an Eco Tour to Capers Island. Our Guide (John) was friendly, knowledgeable, and genuinely loves what he does. The tour was fund and we learned a lot. Our 9 year love it too.

This was the best field trip I've ever been on! We took the Capers Island trip. It was educational and interesting. Sarah, our guide, was fantastic! She was great with the kids, funny, and entertaining!

We recently took this excursion and thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Beginning with a meandering journey through marshlands, the captain explained the are and local environment. Along the way to Capers he pulled up their crab pot so we could all learn about the blue crabs he found. Be sure to bring your camera for Capers Island. What a beautiful and... More

We went out with Jim for a quick inshore fishing trip. He did a fantastic job hosting the trip, answering our questions and making sure that we were having a good time. This company genuinely cares about customer service, which makes all of the difference when you're paying for something like this.
