Was getting my fishing license and some people recommended this company. My son and I went on the day trip and had a great time. The captain moved from spot to spot until we all caught fish. Highly recommend these folks.

We took the 10:30 tour and Dolphin Watch, and will do it again next visit. We did see dolphins but they were being a little shy and not coming too close to the boat. The eco part of the tour was great. We had so much fun holding the sea life. Halibut, Perch, hermit crabs, butterfly rays, there was even... More

Went on the wave runner tour. was able to see dolphins up close and personal! also loved the fact that the staff took us to a place where we could just mess around on the wave runners for a little bit instead of just heading straight back to the dock when we were done. We also went bay fishing with... More

Going in I thought this would be awesome but a series of events has caused my experience to be a negative one. We were supposed to go snorkeling at 1pm for three hours and then parasailing at 5pm. They called that morning telling us the snorkeling trip was cancelled because they had an inspection. We called the competing companies to... More

Didn't see any fish, murky water, seaweed everywhere. Did not enjoy this experience; this was our first snorkel experience and granted we were beginners but sitting on the boat and visiting with other folks who were not in the water (for same reasons) was more entertaining. One out of the three staff (including the captain) were very nice. Captain was... More

We decided it would be fun to do parasailing, so we paid $80 for one tandem. We arrived fifteen minutes early, and were promised the wait would be very short. We ended up waiting 30 minutes only to find out the boat had broken down and we could either stay for an hour or be rescheduled for later. We chose... More

We had a BLAST doing almost everything on their agenda of activities: Bay Fishing, Parasailing and of course, Wave Runners! What a great time! The tour guides, boat captains and crew are all awesome, friendly and took GREAT care of us. The manager even gave me a jump start/battery boost when we returned to find the battery on my truck...

Breakaway Cruise offers a group fishing trip in the bay. It is only $20 per person so you wouldn't expect a lot. Set your expectations low to begin with. They will tell you to arrive 15 - 30 minutes early. Then they will begin boarding twenty minutes late. Then they want each group to have a photo taken with a... More
