We had a great time on this tour. We went during the day and the captain gave us an interesting narrative as we traveled through a waterway and out into the gulf. We saw Osprey, their nests and plenty of dolphins. The prices are reasonable and it was well worth the time.

We saw and Eagle, Osprey, Manatee, and several Dolphins! Awesome time, well worth the money for this cruise. Captain Bruce is very knowledgeable and entertaining.

This is by far the most dolphins I've ever seen on a boat tour! Lots of birds as well. Captain is very nice. Another highlight is going out in to the Gulf for a short time. Highly recommend!

Took the Sunset tour this afternoon/evening. We were lucky enough to see dolphins practically as soon as we had set off!! We saw them again a few minutes later near the edge of the water...... The parrot guiding the boat was funny. Once we went past, he kept squawking!! Further on we saw Egret and Manatees! We were very lucky... More

With a friend coming to Engelwood to visit us, she asked to go on a boat tour. I have never taken one on Lemon Bay so I was game to go. We made our reservations from the website, grabbed some lunch at the Lock and Key and headed over to the departure dock on the side of the Beach Road... More

We booked this tour as a four (two couples) for 13:00 on 7th September. The boat will fit approx 40 people at a push, but there were only around a dozen on the boat, so we were able to move around at will. The tour started with a trip around the bay to try and spot manatees and Dolphins, fortunately... More

We went at a group of 4 and had a great time. We didn't see too many animals - but that's the nature (pun intended) of the industry. Two hour tour and we did see a few dolphins, but the guide was great and had a lot of interesting bits of history, the weather was great also. Tip - bring... More

Went on the tour and had the best captain and wife duo. She was great and and informative and the captain is a old pro at driving yaughts and over all this was the best thing we done other than pick up amazing shells in 7 days. I can't remember their names but it was like we all knew each... More

Beautiful day on the water, seen multiple dolphin swimming. Captain wasn't very friendly unfortuantly . I asked him questions and he acted like we were bothering him. They allowed alcohol on the boat and two people became intoxicated. But I'm not complaining about them two because they were the only one's that talked. Their were 5 people plus four of... More

We apologize that you felt the Captain was not as attentive as usual! We have two Captains and they are fabulous orators and naturalists and they treat all guests with respect and appreciation! All staff is introduced before you leave the docks, as well as the rules of the boat. So, there should have been no mistakes as to whom... More

This is the fourth time in the last few years that we have taken cruise with this company which should be recommendation enough - it really is very good. The captain and his crew are very friendly and welcoming and the boat spacious and comfortable. We taken both sunset cruises and the lunch time cruise and every time have seen... More
