We went on this sunset cruise and I admit I was hesitant to go. I'm very glad I did. Captain Scott is a very friendly, knowledgable guide. I was impressed with the wildlife we saw and the information given to us about the area, different beaches, and of course the wildlife. We were able to get a lot of beautiful... More

We went on the ten o'clock tour. We had a great time and saw several manatees and dolphins. My husband and I loved it, and so did our three children. Justin, our captain, was fun and told us a lot of history about the island. We recommend it to anyone.

Saw tons of dolphins and birds, sunset, but manatees were not cooperating. Learned a lot and Captain Steve let our kids "drive" the boat and where the captain's hat for cute photos. Captain Matt was wonderful as well!
