Captain Sam took myself, my husband and 2 of our friends snorkeling to two different reefs. We had both areas all to ourselves, as Sam knows the waters well and the best places to go. We saw a nurse shark, we followed a sea turtle around a bit, many barracuda, an eel, beautiful coral, and schools of beautiful fish. It... More

Captain Sam offered a great afternoon for my family of 4 (wife and 2 boys ages 13 and 11). We enjoyed snorkeling on a nearby reef and some eco touring on our way back to the dock. Excellent service and knowledge of the area. Highly recommend!

We had a great snorkeling trip out and saw a manatee on the ecotour! Captain Sam knows the area well and it was a fun learning experience!

My husband and I shared the sunset cruise with another couple. We all had a delightful evening. We found Captain Sam to be very personable, very knowledgeable of the plant life, wildlife and general information of the area. If you can split the expense with another couple, that's great, but it's worth taking at full price.

We where going to rent our own boat because I'm a experienced boater, then I decided to rent a boat with a captain so I could enjoy the day with the family also. Samantha was fabulous she showed us interesting spots on bay side we would have never seen after snorkelling out by the light house. We are planning to... More

She took us snorkeling and did a tour of the area. She took us to a fun place to play in the water! We learned a lot about the bay side.

Great day out with Captain Sam. We wanted a little bit of everything - we went snorkeling at Alligator Reef which was amazing and can't be missed and cruised the mangroves learning about the local wildlife and Eco system. We also were able to find a dolphin pod and play with them for quite some time which was like nothing... More
