Everything promised and more! Had a great day out with Connor and his first mate. Started out with full personal instruction on how to control the catamaran . Very comfortable, easy to control once you got out on the water and fast! Communication continued with walkie talkie contained in each boat to provide instruction and tour narrations along the route to a gorgeous sand bar where we docked a bit to allow those who brought food to have a bite and also to swim in the shallow waters(hint bring snacks, drinks and a towel…you will get wet from the sea splash en route). Highly recommend for any age- you WILL have an awesome day on the beautiful inter coastal!

Excellent time “Riding the Waves”. Conner our tour guide did an excellent job on all fronts from teaching us how to operate the boat to explaining the different things we saw on our tour. Even saw a dolphin. A must do for your bucket list.

Riding the Waves is a great experience. Conner was the guide and Billy was his right hand man. Conner explained the process, then walked us through it and made sure we were comfortable before starting. He was nice and professional. He took us through Manasota and Lemon Bays. We were able to see lots of dolphins! There were quite a few Osprey, a great blue Heron and a pink butted bird (forgot the name) and many other waterfowl. Conner knew what everything was and gave a little history about them as well. He also took pictures of us on the experience and was able to airdrop them to us. We absolutely LOVED riding the waves. I highly recommend and plan on booking again the next time we are here!!
