This was a very relaxing and exciting excursion to take. We saw a sea turtle and manatee. We also saw a 30 plus foot boat that was sinking. We enjoyed hearing the captain interact with the US Coastguard on two different occasions.

We decided to do something different on our first couples vacation (sans kids) and are we glad we did! And, luckily, we were the only group for the 11 am tour so we were able to not only tour the marina area but also go out about 1-1/2 mile into the gulf! Chris, the owner, and Captain Scott are both... More

The staff was great, Capt. Scott was awesome as a tour guide, Just a wonderful time, got to see stingrays jumping out of the water, a flock of dolphins, really cool time. I had no previous boating experience and handled these mini speed boats without issue. Well worth the money spent.
