It is always fun to go out with Captain Gary. Today's weather was perfect, and we saw lots of dolphins, rays, barracuda, and a loggerhead turtle.

Had a great time with Captain Zach! Up close and personal experience with the dolphins and snorkeling was fun! We are locals and this was the greatest tour! We appreciated being on the boat with fewer people, it felt like a private tour :)

Captain Richard was amazing with us. Full of knowledge and humor. The "dolphin show" was phenomenal. He was even able to get my water-skittish teens to enjoy snorkeling. All of them want to go back!

I personally wouldn’t recommend it. It’s kind of a small boat so somewhat rough with the waves. Not smooth like on a larger boat.
