Captain Justin was both professional and humorous with everybody on board ,... More

We were a group of people from Denmark having a very nice trip. Captain Scott and David showed us dolphins, pelicans and a beautiful sunset. It was a very relaxing trip and Scott gave us a lot of information about the surrounding nature.

The water, sun, weather and company all combined for a great night. The narration regarding the area houses and history was very interesting. The timing was perfect as we got to see a gorgeous sunset while out in the gulf. We were lucky enough to see a great impromptu dolphin show as well. I highly recommend this trip. The boat... More
