Rob was fantastic. We had a great time and saw lots. He did a great job luring the dolphins to jump behind the boat. Our 2 year old was also entertained in the front of the boat.

Rob took us down the river to the Gulf and back in his motorboat, a little over three hours. Just what we wanted.

Both Capt. Rob and Josh were absolutely amazing guides for both the motorboat and kayak tours, respectively. They were knowledgable, caring, and let us enjoy our tours at our own pace. They went out of their way to show us as much wildlife as possible!...More

I have a grandson that age. I wouldn't take him. The trip was a couple hours. That is a long time sitting in a kayak for a toddler. Mosquitoes were super thick. Off was effective. Not sure about toddler and Off.
