Planning adventures with my extended family is like trying to herd cats and usually no one can agree on any one event, but this was definitely a winner! The ride was lovely, we saw 7 dolphins, and we spent about an hour just swimming and looking for shark teeth- very relaxing! Mike and Janie were able to customize the trip... More

Thank you for your review! It was fun helping you "herd cats" into separate groups so many of your family could enjoy some time on the boat! I think we managed to pack a lot of activities into the day for everyone, and I know Janie enjoyed joining us on the afternoon trip too! We hope to see you again... More

We took 4 of our grand kids on the yacht of fun. This was the highlight of their vacation. They all had a awesome time. They went fishing and everyone caught fish, sharks, crabs and even a stingray. The day was relaxing with no rush on time. Mike was very knowledgeable about the area and had great stories. When anyone... More

You will not find a more competent, skilled and friendly guide than Captain Mike! His knowledge of the waterways, fish and history of the area made for a perfect trip. He surpassed all expectations we had and was particularly good with the kids who are still talking about the fantastic day they had. His boat was far more comfortable and... More

Thanks so very much for such an awesome review! It was a really great "boys' day" on the boat for sure! Three adult guys totally out fished by three little guys! Maybe because the big guys didn't have on the really cool fishing clothes like the little guys were wearing! It was a marathon fishing day for sure, and I'm... More
