Captain Bill and first mate Dustin were amazing. They were both very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw tons of dolphins and hung out with some manatees. Definitely worth the money. We will definitely be doing this again.

The captain was very knowledgeable and friendly. Awsome 2 hour getaway! We saw several manatee and a dolphin swam right next to the pontoon! Shaded area to sit under if you choose. Would recommend and do it again!

Really enjoyed this tour. Saw many dolphins which swam along side the boat for a time. We only got to see manatees from a distance, but the tour was definitely worthwhile. The guides were very knowledgeable.
