We went on the "sunset" cruise on a Sunday evening. Captain Nancy has a wealth of knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area. We saw dolphins and hundreds of birds roosting on Bird Island. The cruise was very enjoyable and educational too. The cruise lasted 2 1/2 hours with wine and cheese served. We highly recommend this trip!

The two and a half hours we recently spent on a pontoon boat cruising the Indian River Lagoon was money well spent ($50 per person). Captain Nancy runs this eco tour and provides a virtually nonstop commentary and wealth of information on the geography, history, environment and wildlife of this fragile ecosystem. She is a passionate advocate for environmental responsibility,... More

This wildlife tour is so informative and Captain Nancy is so passionate about nature and conservation that it rubs off on you. If you miss this tour while in this area you will really miss out on learning so much about the wildlife in this area and even the planet itself.

We learned a good bit about the areas we were in. Captain Nancy and Patrick were welcoming and helpful. Some on the boat didn't care for all of her opinions about how the local government.

Captain Nancy is a wealth of information on the wildlife, history, and ecology of the Indian River Lagoon. Seeing and learning about Bird Island was one of the highlights of the tour. An outstanding tour both for what you see and what you learn. Note: located in Pirate's Cove. If you do a search on Google Maps without first putting... More

I took this trip yesterday with a group of elderly seniors who all had walkers and one was in a wheelchair. Captain Nancy was EXTREMELY helpful and caring to each and every one of them. She even assisted me with boarding the walkers and made a special trip to unlock the nearest bathroom for one of the women. She definitely... More

This boat tour was a nice way to see the area by way of water. We got to see some dolphins and lots of birds. It was reasonable in length at 2 hours. I rated this trip down because of the operator Nancy's attitude and tone. Their was a constant agenda to be critical of everyone and every governmental agency... More

Last week I took my visitors from UK on the Sunshine Wildlife Tour. This was a most enjoyable morning. Captain Nancy is so knowledgeable about the lagoon and we learned such a lot about the life in the estuary and the importance of this in the ecosystem. Her enthusiasm and passion for the wildlife sustained by this stretch of water... More

First, I want to say the boat ride was very enjoyable. The mate Patrick did an excellent job of pointing out wildlife and making the experience enjoyable for everyone on board. There were also some educational elements that were interesting. However, the poor rating is because despite the enjoyable nature of the ride the ranting and ravings of Captain Nancy... More
