We went out on the evening Dolphin tour and was such an enjoyable evening. The Lady Captain did a great job. She took us out to the light house and ship wreck, and of coarse got to see a lot of beautiful Dolphins. Loved it and was a great time with family and I loved watching the kids watch the... More

A pelican actually flew down and was eating fish remnants within 2 feet of us. The birds have no fear of humans and are very friendly, just going about their business.

Just went out on the Scat Cat for a 12 hrs over night with a buddy and my son. Had a great time and caught some fish. Captain had us on the spot and deck hands were very polite, knowledgeable and helpful. They worked very hard to make sure everyone had a great experience.

We took the jetty boat out to St. Jo's for shell collecting. The captain was friendly. We went on a cloudy misty day, so we only stayed two hours. It is very primitive. Take any and everything you might need. The captains run right on time, regardless of conditions. We stood in the rain for 15 minutes thinking they would... More

We made several trips to the wharf to watch vessels come in the channel, boats leaving to fish, and dolphins playing in the waves.

I went on the Scat Cat for a 9 hour ride with my dad, a diehard fisherman. The staff was extremely helpful and willing to help everyone get as many fish as they could. The ride out into the ocean was nice and we did see dolphins on multiple occasions. Overall, this was a great experience.
