What a great staff, tour guide on top telling you some fun facts about the area. Bartender downstairs and the captain. Masks are require at all time unless your taking a drink. Bring a jacket for when the sunsets. Chill and relaxing atmosphere and some had more of a party time (respectfully).

This tour was amazing! From the girl who helped us make reservations to the captain and bartenders- everyone was so nice and friendly. It was a really windy day so we did not go out to the gulf but the captain drove around and we did see dolphins neat bird island! The unlimited drinks option was great! Would def do this again!
