Private charter with a personable captain who knows a lot about the area. He also made sure us northerners got to see some dolphins! Beautiful way to see the island and the sunset. Best part of our trip.

We chartered with the Special K about 2 years ago and again this year. The captain was great with our grandchildren letting them help and explaining everything. We really enjoyed all the dolphins that we saw up close too. It is obvious he enjoys people and his boat! Highly recommend !
