The tour of the island was the best!!! We seen areas that we never seen before. We weren't crazy about the beers but the appetizers were great!!! Next time we want to take the Dinner Cruise!!! It is on the upper deck so you have to go up steep stairs.

The crew was excellent and very knowledgeable. The Eco net drag provided an excellent experience for my kids to star fish, stingray, and other fish up... More

The Eco tour was great, Courtney and Wilson were very nice and answered all our questions. We got to see a female blue crab that was pregnant, two star fish and two flounder, and some live coral. We also saw a few dolphins. It was a great time. Joe our tour guide for the jet ski tour was also great!... More
