What a great experience we had on the dolphin tour. Our captain, captain Scott was so wonderful and great with all the kids on board. We were able to take a relaxing tour to see various sea life, especially dolphins. I definitely recommend this tour and ask for captian Scott.

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.
