We had a great time. The large boat made for a smooth ride. The crew, John and Lea were awesome! Would recommend again!

We really enjoyed our evening (sunset) cruise from this company. We were able to see a large number of dolphins during our cruise, including one that stayed along side the boats for 10-15 seconds. The narration of the harbor and its history was also nice.

Great time! Only issue was the nasty naked lady mural right next to the loading dock. With 4 boys, I did not appreciate that at all. I know it isn't their building but If they made a stink, it could be changed.

Had an amazing trip! Captain Robert took us out. We saw great things from the ocean. The best part was all the Dolphins he found! Just a wonderful experience!

Really interesting---we saw pufferfish, starfish, sea slugs and rays. Also saw lots of dolphins, which swam alongside the boat. This area... More

We and our parents used Breakaway's services for para-sailing and it was a fantastic experience. Joe and Roscoe did a wonderful job in making sure that we were safe and kept us entertained. The prices were quite reasonable and service was prompt.

We had a blast!! Michael went along with us on our wave runners but let us have free reign after getting out on the water. Michael and another guy( dang it can't remember his name) took us in our parasailing ride. They are my heros. Quite an adventure. Thrill of my lifetime!!

We want to thank Joe for a great day! Joe is one heck of a hard worker. We did parasailing in the day and fishing at night. Joe kept everyone safe, happy, and quickly helped everyone with their fish. Thanks Joe!
