Overview

31' Eastern Boat, holds 13 passengers for an intimate lunch or sunset cruise. While traveling through the Boca Bayou and Boca Grande Isles our captains will point out different homes and businesses of interest, along with any wildlife we see. Usually dolphins jump in our wake, so make sure you bring a camera. Some of our normal destinations include Cabbage Key, Useppa, and Captiva islands. We also do private tours upon request.

While the captains were nice and the island lunch was delicious, the boat ride itself was terrible. The boat was overcrowded; there weren’t enough seats for the people on the boat. The cost was $59 per person and we were crammed together with people sitting...More

We went to see the sunset but the real treat is the many many dolphins jumping just a few feet from the boat. Boat staff point out interesting facts about homes and boats and overall do an excellent job. This is an excellent trip.
