Captain Nate gave us a wonderful cruise with the luck of seeing dolfins, ponies, great bird life and a gorgeous sunset. I highly recommend this in nice weather.

Took their nature tour on 11/2 at 4:45. They captain and crew went out of their way to be sure that we saw as much of the wildlife as we could.

Our family had gone on a Daisey's nature cruise a few years ago on a smaller boat. It was a great experience! When we heard that the Daisey's sold their business, we were hesitant. When we had family visiting from to of town, our group was too big for a smaller boat tour. We rode on their newest boat which... More

The boat was comfortable, we saw a pod of dolphins up close, a herd of wild ponies up close, learned lots of fascinating history of the island, and there was a stunning sunset! Captain Carlton was flexible, talkative, generous and funny. Couldn't have been better.

We booked this tour for 1:00pm departure and it is well worth the money! We went on the larger boat (for the restroom). And yes, the seats were cushioned! Yay! I would recommend bringing a windbreaker and a camera. We were also allowed to bring snacks (I did not see a trash can onboard so bring something to put your... More

Capt. Fred gave us the best (dolphins, horses, bald eagles wild life and more on his spectacular cruise Sat. 9/27/14). We had perfect weather and good company on board. Because of Fred's life on the island, his knowledge of the history was never ending. We could have listened to him for many more hours. Thank you Daisey tours. Beth &... More
