My family has had a house on LBI for about 25 years. With the current COVID situation we chose not to leave NJ this summer for vacation and do things we have never done before on and around the island we love so much.

My mother had suggested LBI boat tours because she had heard about them.

Tom lead us on a great tour showing us places that we have never seen on and around the island. Our family has never had a boat so the places that Tom took us to we're unseen, beautiful and interesting.

We had no idea about the historical significance of Little Egg Inlet or what Reclam the Bay does though we have seen their stickers for a few years. Everyone on the trip from my mother to my children found Tom's knowledge to be very interesting and plentiful.

Additionally, Tom is a very good at the controls of the boat. He didn't charge the other boats wake and the ride was very smooth whether in the bay or even out in the ocean. His boat is well maintained and super clean.

I would recommend taking a trip with LBI boat tours whether it is your first visit to LBI or you have been here forever. We had a beautiful morning and my mother who is a year round resident couldn't have been more pleased that she suggested it.

Capt. Carl and his crewmen from LBI Boat Tours provided our family an exceptional experience for a most emotional memorial, honoring my Mother by committing her ashes to sea, as she requested prior to her passing. Leading up to the event, Capt. Carl was responsive and highly communicative, asking detailed questions about our desires for the ceremony, and providing professionally-prepared scriptures which we modified for our family's unique needs. The day of the event, Capt. Carl was prepared to launch right on time with a vessel more than adequately large for our family of 11 with ample room to walk about and stretch our legs on our journey to the sea. He and the crew were highly knowledgeable, professional, and superb seamen, offering us a smooth ride in otherwise moderately choppy waters. What topped off our experience with LBI Boat Tours, was the immediate surprise we received following our trip... a signed certificate of my Mother's Commitment to Sea. This was a classy touch that solidified our opinion that LBI Boat Tours and Capt. Carl were the perfect crew for such an important moment in our lives. Price was not a significant factor in choosing LBI Boat Tours, but their rate was superb for the service we received. We offer the highest recommendation for this flawless experience.

Our family of 5 adults and 3 children booked a sunset cruise while on vacation. Booking and payment were super easy. Captain Tom and his first mate were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Due to COVID it was a private cruise (so there is a benefit to this whole mess!) The boat was clean and spacious. We brought drinks and snacks and danced with kids. A perfect evening! Would love to come back another time and book a daytime tour.

Captain Jake gave my family’s time slot to another group stating I did not send a $50 deposit. Through email exchange, we both discussed sending the deposit via Venmo was the best option. I did so the Sunday before our cruise for Tuesday evening. Jake and I discussed over the phone and said he did not see the Venmo transaction email confirmation, hence why the cruise was given to another group and nothing else could be done. I expressed my disappointment and asked how he planned to rectify the issue. He was clear that this wasn’t a business, but a “hobby”. He was arrogant, rude, and displayed aggressive characteristics. As a customer, it was poor customer service and would not recommend this activity to anyone.

We are certainly sorry that you had a misunderstanding with Captain Jake. However Captain Jake does not work for or with LBIBoatTours. We advised you that LBIBoatTours was already booked when you wanted to go boating. In an effort to be helpful we gave you the contact information for Captain Jake, a local captain who offers sunset cruises. Your dispute is with Captain Jake and not us. It is unfortunate that you chose to take out your frustration by posting a public and negative review of our business which was not involved in your communications and was only trying to be helpful to you.

Our family got the Sunset Cruise this July and it was a great experience. The boat is beautiful and spotless. I highly recommend LBI Boat Tours when you are in the area. Get some fresh air, nice pictures, and great memories.

Our family has been coming down to LBI for years and we had no idea what we were missing. Stumbled upon LBI Boat Tours as we were looking for ways to branch out this year. It was the perfect mix of fun and relaxation while we learned facts about lbi that we never knew. Captain Tom was great. Highly recommend!

Had a great Sunset Cruise on the bay with Captain Tom last night. He is really friendly and very knowledgeable about LBI having had many years of experience on the water. He will cruise at whatever speed your group is comfortable with. We were a group of 3 couples but there is a boat that will accommodate up to 20. He is open to custom trips such as fireworks or full moon tours too ! Just ask ! You won’t be disappointed !!! 😊

Captain Tom is hands down one of the best boat captains and his boat tour was amazing. Loved the history of LBI as part of the tour, my kids loved every minute and we were able to all relax and enjoy the view! I would recommend him if you were thinking of doing something as a 2 hour diversion on your beach vacation. Completely worth it. Thank you Captain Tom!!!

We had a wonderful time last night. Not only was the sunset beautiful but the boat was great, Tom was very friendly and accommodating, he answered our questions about the area and talked about some of its history. We had a cooler of drinks and our party of four enjoyed every minute. He asked if we’d like a faster ride at two points after going slower for awhile and we said an enthusiastic “Yes”! So fun! Of course he will stay slow if that’s your preference.
I’ve been coming down to vacation on LBI for most of my 55 years and have been on many sunset cruises. This was hands-down the best. Thank you, Captain Tom!!

We took the sunset tour on a beautiful September evening. Being seniors Captain Tom was aware that one of our party needed assistance getting aboard his boat. He was so willing to do everything to make our trip a great experience and that is just what we had. The tour was informative and we even got to see dolphins in the bay. A gorgeous sunset ended our tour and all 6 of us had a wonderful time. Will certainly do his tour again.
