“3rd times the charm!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We have been coming to St George island for many years, and last year decided to try snorkeling. We were all booked up and ready to go and then Tropical storm Debby wreaked havoc on our plans and Vacation as we were evacuated from the island. This year we booked again, and this time we had a two week stay. Our Snorkeling appointment was during our first week. The weather was bad for a few days and the wind also. We got a call from Seahorse that it was too windy and our trip was again cancelled. We rescheduled for the next week. The day of our appointment, we made the drive from St. George Island to Port St Joe. It had been raining and quite hard at times. We went into the front desk and were told that others had cancelled their trip and they would need at least ten people before the captain would make the trip. We just knew we were not going to get to go snorkeling once again. After waiting around for maybe 20 minutes, more people signed up to go and we were on our way. It was raining a little but that did not deter us. The captain boated us to a location just of the St Joe State Park peninsula. While it was rainy , the water was very clear. We found numerous sandollar, starfish, seahorses, fish, and urchin. The crew then held a show and tell and were very informative. Even though it took us three tries to go snorkeling, I think it was well worth it. I think next time we will rent a boat and do our own snorkeling adventure.

“Friendly, conscientious staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

If there is a chance for inclement weather, you will not be renting a boat. I remember when a telephone call came into the office from some tourists who were under the bridge in difficulty. Julie, the owner, got In her car and drove to the bridge to assist the stranded tourists. They are extremely safety conscious. Their sunset cruise is particularly nice and inexpensive. The owner, Gary, drives the boat and gives an extensive narrative about the area. There is always a chance to get some great sunset pictures.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

My husband and I came to Port Saint Joe for our 10 year anniversary. We were looking for things to do and came across the shark fishing excursion. What better way to celebrate shark week?! The crew was fantastic, extremely friendly, helpful, and courteous. While my husband only caught a small fish, I caught a shark! It was a great time. I highly recommend it!

“Good Times”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

My Family and I have traveled to Port St. Joe for many years, and the folks at Sea Horse have always been very helpful and professional. We have always found them to be very reasonable in dealing with us when our boat rentals have been affected by the ever-present summer thunderstorms there on the Gulf. Their employees are courteous and professional, and we come back year after year!

“Great way to spend a day in the Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

We rented a pontoon boat from Seahorse for an all day outing. It was a last minute decision after we got to Cape San Blas. The staff went out of their way to let us know about cancellations so that we got a boat. The moral of that story is don't wait till you get here to book a boat.

The staff went over everything about the boat and pointed out some good places to snorkel. We had four teenagers on the boat the whole day and everybody had a great time.
