They talked to each other the entire time. The captain also spent time on her cell phone discussing personal business that we were not... More

We had a group on a dolphin tour with Captain Kim including a couple kids. First off I think I had somebody else (not Kim) as our guide was very young and didn't introduce herself to us. We saw some dolphins which we liked (particularly our kids) so that was worth it right there. However other than that we were... More

This was a great tour. Educational, relaxing, and exciting to see all the things living in the bay and around the bay. Also enjoyed the history lesson. Thank you Captain Kim. I will be back for another ride.

My husband and I enjoyed a two hour morning tour with four other people. Captain Kim was friendly, personable and very knowledgeable about the area. She showed us the sea life in many different eco systems. We learned much of the history of the area and had a great time. I highly recommend her tour!

What a great tour! We found a bunch of sand dollars, sea urchins, a spider crab, a hermit crab and several conchs. We saw several frigate birds and dolphins. We got to get out and walk around a sand bar as well as spend some great time boating around the area. Loved it!

We took a 90 minute cruise with Capt Kim, along with our daughter and family (granddaughters ages 6 and 14), and had a great time. Our cruise included a stop at a sand bar, where we all got out of the boat and found sand dollars, sea urchins and other sea creatures while wading in knee-deep water. We then stopped... More
