A great experience. Capt Nick and first mate Dee were the best. Capt Nick narrated the trip that was 2 hours on the intercoastal waterway with just a peak at the Gulf at Stump Pass due to very rough water in the Gulf. The intercoastal was very calm. Capt Nick let the kids on board take a turn at the helm. Water, soda and snack can be purchased or you can bring your own beveridges. The crown of the trip were the many dolphins spotted. Many right beside the boat. Again a great experience.

Capt Nick and Dee were very friendly and entertaining. Nick let the kids on the boat steer and engaged all of them for fun. I recommend Lemon Bay Tours. Safety briefing to start the trip and showed everyone where the life preserver’s were located.

We took a large party: 5 adults, 3 teens, and a toddler. Everyone had a wonderful time. Captain Nick and Kim were very entertaining and accommodating. When anyone on the boat saw something of interest, we'd slow. We saw a school of dolphins, which was a highlight! The area itself is absolutely gorgeous. I would definitely recommend!
