We left from the Eau Gallie location, which was a bit confusing because you have to meet at a public boat ramp, but easy enough to figure out . The boat is impressive, new and comfortable. Bring a little cooler, and snacks if you havn't eaten. There is none for sale on the boat. Watch out though, the web site... More

I took 8 of us on a tour! We seen several dolphins and a host of birds and aquatic life! Definitely a nice time! I do feel that beverages should be offered to the guests.....

We booked onto this trip the day before. We were told to arrive at the launch 15 to 20 mins before launch time. Which the majority of the passengers did. Cptn Bob did have to go back for late arrivals. There is plenty of wild life to observe. There were dolphins to see, as well as pelicans, cormorants and a... More

Was very disappointed in this tour. Am a local and had friends here from California. The "guide" never even said hello or goodbye, acted very put out to have us there. Could hardly hear what he was saying and everyone commented on it. We did see lots of dolphins, no manatees though. Just kind of boring. Price with groupon was... More

We took this tour to see dolphins and that is what we got! The Captain was great, his corny jokes kept us entertained. He had a lot of knowledge about the area we were in and seemed to know a lot about the dolphins. It was a great experience!

My family and I had a blast on the tour. Captain Ron was funny and informative. He knew a lot about the area. We saw a ton of dolphins and one little manatee nose!! I recommend this for all ages!!

The "master captain" is extremely rude and unprofessional. This was the worse service I have ever had. The captain was vulgar and demeaning. It was unacceptable behavior and I would stay far away from him and his tours.

Started with the bad directions on the web page....creating us to arrive about 5 minutes prior to the boat leaving....we were chastised by the tour guide in front of 20 people for not following the instructions to be there 30 minutes early for boarding after I told him his directions needed an overhauling....others complained about the same thing. The tour... More

The tour starts from the boat ramp on the south side of the causeway just before finishing the crossing of the Indian river. There are no signs to indicate where it is because you are picked up at a county park dock that is public, so no private signs or advertising are allowed. This was confusing to the people navigating... More
