Five stars isn't enough! We had the best time, and Jessica was phenomenal! We not only saw dolphins, but Captain Jessica knew just how to get them to play in the boat's wake, it was amazing. We booked this cruise mainly to see dolphins, but I'm so glad we also got to do some shelling - so much better than the shelling on Sanibel! Cannot recommend strongly enough, worth 10 stars! Captain Jessica was really fun and it's obvious that she's experiences, which makes all the difference.

Our family had a great time on the dolphin/shelling cruise with Jessica. She did a super job and we seen many dophins on our cruise. We enjoyed the time looking for shells on the private beach area also. She was lots of fun & very friendly. She also followed up with us later & emailed us photos of our afternoon.

We had a great morning on the water with Captain Jessica! Our two kids- ages 2 and 6- got to see Dolphin playing up close, a huge iguana, and lots of different kinds of birds. They had fun collecting shells and leaning about different rocks. Highly recommend!

We had a great trip with our two kids — seven and ten years old. They saw dolphins who played in the wake of the boat, found shells on a nearly deserted beach and had a perfect first boating experience.

We had such a ball on this dolphin/shelling tour. Jessica was an amazing captain. Very personable and knowledgeable. We saw a ton of dolphins. It was a beautiful ride. If you are in the area Jessica is the best.
