My mother and I took a 2-hr cruise with Captain Phil. We enjoyed every minute of our trip. We called at the last minute to book an afternoon cruise and Captain Phil was very responsive. It was a beautiful day to be on the water and we look forward to another cruise with Captain Phil in the future.

Captain Phil was very responsive while planning our trip. On the day of the cruise, he arrived on time and the boat was very clean. He was very knowledgable about the local wildlife. On the ride, we saw a bald eagle, ospreys, herons and muskrat. While he was willing to chat and share his insights, Captain Phil also let us just relax amongst ourselves. He allowed us to bring our own food and drinks on the boat. It was truly a beautiful and peaceful ride and highlight of our trip.

We spent four hours exploring the waterways with Captain Phil. The boat was clean, comfortable and well maintained. Everyone had a blast hunting for birds to photograph. Captain Phil was patient and quite knowledgeable. Can't wait to go back.

My husband and I booked a sunset cruise with captain Phil to celebrate my birthday. We had so much fun! Captain Phil is such a sweet man with lots of information on local wildlife and the town of Urbanna. It was a cold, windy December evening so we spent much of our time cruising the creeks and admiring blue Herron's. We even spotted a pair of bald eagles! Can't wait to come back when the weather is warmer and the Osprey are back for the season. We will definitely be returning to cruise with Captain Phil! Top notch fella we are honored to be acquainted with. It's truly the only way to discover Urbanna; Getting the best views possible. This outing is worth every penny-Just GO!

Our family of five had a great time with Captain Phil. We have been going to Grey's Point for a few years and wanted something new to do. All three of our boys got to drive the boat. Phil was very patient with them and was a great teacher. Mom and Dad got to learn about the different coves and some stories behind some of the houses we saw. We also enjoyed Phil's hospitality and learning about his days as a stay at home Dad. It was something for everyone. Hope we get to do something this cool when we retire.
