Captain Tommy was outstanding; Brie was attentive. Kids enjoyed learning about the oil and gas, fishing, the cattle island and Mother Nature. Must do!

We went on the dolphin watching cruise and it was fantastic! The captain knew exactly where to go to find a ton of dolphins. He was so knowledgeable about the area and we learned so much about the area and the wildlife as well as the process of fishing for shrimp on a shrimp boat. He even let the kids take turns driving the boat out in the open water. We went back the next day and rented a golf cart from them. It was such a fun experience! Easy process for every and friendly staff. Don’t forget to get a coffee too, it is delicious there!

The captain was extremely knowledgeable (he's a biologist). The other crew member was great. Drinks and snacks included. And of course, great views of the Whoopers, plus dolphins and more.

I won this adventure in a fundraiser and was looking forward to going for a while. We We made a last minute booking for a Sunday trip and grabbed our binoculars. It was a bit cold but I loved being on the top of the boat as we spent the time getting to the Wildlife refuge. The Captain gave us lots of information about the path we took, beginning of the trip by checking temps and hand sanitizers. Masks were optional pointed out landmarks and was very professional. Precautions were taken at the and many wore them the entire time. We were able to get "up close and personal" to the whooping crane and watch them feed on the blue crab, etc. The captain pointed out various other species along the way, spotting then and identifying them for those not well informed . We also got the treat of watching the dolphins play in the wake of the boat. had been putting it off because of Covid but decided that it was time to check it out. I would go again on this excursion as I feel each time you would become better at spotting the differences in the species. The crew offered coffee or cold drinks and snacks, nice touch. Dress accordingly -you can always sit inside on the bottom level if the day is cool.
