Captain Ed and Heather are THE best. Captain listens to us and pays attention to the group we have aboard.

Chris our guide was wonderful. The amount of birds and wildlife was incredible. Loved seeing the white pelicans and the dolphins. Shelling was an added treat. Well worth the price.

Wonderful experience with only 5 people on the boat. The dolphins, the birds and the shells, they all were present and our captain did a exquisite job. Would love to do it again.

All of our guides are Florida Master Naturalists, this time of year during season of course we encounter other boats. We try our best to take our guests to less busy areas but tides and winds will limit us at times.

Had a wonderful time with Chris and Marco tours. Tons of birds, shells, and photos with dolphin airings to wrap the day up. Would highly suggest!
