We had a wonderful trip. We saw several dolphins, manatees, and wild birds. The crew was very polite. In addition they were knowledgeable about the many types of birds and wild animals. We recommend this trip to anyone who likes to be just side. Very family friendly.

What a great time, Tonya and Speedy did a great job. A very relaxing time, never felt hurried. The 2 hour ride felt like a 4 hour ride. We will definitely do this again when we are in town.

Took the 12:00 tour with our daughter and 2 grand boys. It couldn't have been better! Driver, Tonya and guide, Speedy were entertaining, and professional. We saw dolphins, manatees and numerous birds up close and personal. Speedy was great at keeping the boys ages 7 and 10

Excellent trip in a small group. The guides were very knowledgeable & took extra time with the children on board, teaching them about the area & the wildlife we saw. Very impressed with the whole experience
