“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Went on a Sunset tour. Captian was knowledgeable about waters and history (at least it sounded good) Beautiful tour where we got to see many of God's grand creatures! Sunset was truly amazing as well. Would return for another trip again!

“Lots of Dolphins Dancing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

What a lovely way to spend the afternoon!

The Captain was very gracious in accepting our last minute reservation. He welcomed and oriented us well to the boat and its safety features - including a small washroom on board that was extremely clean! He also reminded us that the water in the bay was so shallow that if you fell overboard, you could just stand up!

The tour was well organized and very informative. We learned some interesting facts about the flora and fauna of the area, as well as the history of the development. There were many sightings of dolphins - some who were so familiar to our guide he told us their names! Waterbirds and their nests were also fun to see and learn about. We also happened upon a tipped sailboat marooned in shallow water that was struggling to be restored to upright!

The tour gave us a nice overview of the area and some ideas of what to explore next.

“Dolphins, dolphins, dolphins!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon nature tour. Captain Bruce is knowledgeable and funny. We have taken numerous nature tours in Southwest Fl., and we saw more dolphins on this trip than anywhere else. Dolphins are my favorite!

“Cool Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

We took the afternoon Nature Cruise and completely enjoyed the nearly 2 hour leisurely trip around Lemon Bay and briefly out into the Gulf to watch the dolphins come to play and visit us. Capt Bruce's knowledge is vast and he provides an excellent commentary. It's inexpensive and worth more than the price in scenery alone. Learned alot, met some great foreign visitors and had just plain fun.

“fun trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

If you enjoy a calm relaxing boat ride, and like seeing birds this is for you! This company operates a clean safe vessel and was very polite and preformed the tour as advertised. As others have posted it can be tricky to find the right place to park. Also, gps will likely misguide you. Overall a great time.
