When we started they asked people to put $10 into a pool- biggest fish wins. I won! When we get back they give me $100 for biggest fish. Next morning I ate breakfast at the hotel with two families who were on our boat. One man said he was #24 on the list Nd another said they told him the... More

We love to prowl and explore, at night, and it proves perfect, to do that here! Saw dolphins and sea turtles! Just wonderful!

We went out on the Scat Cat for a sunset cruise. The boat has two decks—you can sit inside, at a table or even lie down in a bunk, on the lower level; or you can roam about in the wind and watch the waves on the upper level. Our captain was very amenable to all interests (dolphin, lighthouse, etc.)... More

I started out on the early jetty boat. It nearly left on time and came to retrieve me at about the same pace. The island's beach is covered with seaweed right now, but there is good shelling near the dunes and along the wave breaking line. I found lots of small sanddollars on this trip. I also found a key...

Very friendly staff! We booked an 8 hour trip and the boat captain worked constantly to make sure everyone caught fish. Deck hands were great. The only complaint was you are only allowed to catch 2 red snapper which is a law and nothing the wharf can do anything about.

We took the 5 hour deep sea fishing trip. The boat was clean and all the equipment we used was in good shape. Deck hands were awesome and did a great job with keeping all poles working and baited, and getting the fish out of the water once we had them reeled in. Almost everyone caught a fish, and they...

Went with the family on the dolphin tour while on spring break. I wasn't sure what to expect but I am glad that we decided to do this activity. We were on the boat with about 4 other families so the boat wasn't very crowded. We saw lots of dolphins in the bay. The captain did a good job of... More
