“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

This boat trip far exceeded our expectations. It is a small family run business and has all the charm and fun and enthusiasm that comes with that. We didn't know what to expect other than we were going into the Canaveral National Seashore area.

The boat ride turned out to be a mini eco-tour. We saw the Tuttle Mound Archeological sight, lots of islands, and wild areas. We got to see a number of dolphins and manatees. But even if we hadn't seen the marine wildlife, the tour would have still been fantastic. Captain Bill and his wife were warm, friendly and I even watched with admiration on how they were patient, kind and caring with an elderly man on our boat. They genuinely care for people, it showed also in how they treated the kids. I can't highly recommend this enough.

PS: The boat is equipped with a marine bathroom. JB's restaurant has great food, and is always busy.

“A nice experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

Both the pontoon boat and the captain could use a bath, however, the tour is nice and the captain is quite knowledgeable about the Indian River, river dolphin, clam beds, El Dora and manatees. We purchased a groupon without knowing anything about the tour and had a nice exoerience.
