    My grandchildren loved the scavenger hunt and the waterfall in the butterfly garden! The dioramas of the Cortez boat dock and the interactive shell display helped the children with hands on learning. I would not hesitate to return again next year for them to take more time to learn about the shells and the history of the fishing community. The fact that the museum is free makes it even better! The gift store is stocked with educational family friendly gifts as well!

    Cortez Cultural Center shares a wealth of information about Levy County and her Gulf Islands. You can use facilities, buy a drink.

    Our grandchildren had a great time on this adventure. The crew worked really hard to make it fun and enjoyable. We look forward to having our other set of grandchildren visit so that they’ll be able to do it.

    This is a long, long-overdue review of our 2nd trip with H2O Watersportz in November 2020 after our first trip on 11/7/20. We had a second fantastic experience in the 17' center console, spending the day going down and back the Gulf side of Long Boat Key, then down the ICW and back through Sarasota Bay. Every day here seems to be eventful -- we passed a monster truck churning the water off the Coquina Beach South boat ramp - figured it was just another Sunday on Longboat Pass. Search for it on the 'Tube :-)
    What I return to time and again in my memories is my gratitude to Dale, Captain Andrew (from our first trip) and Blossom for getting us on the water. Thanks again to Dale on this trip for his calm, patience and radiant kindness. Here I am 7 months later writing this review, the experience was that great, starting with the check in with Blossom and Dale's introduction to the boat, then on to the day's fun on the water and our return. Dale thoroughly explained all the equipment in the boat and expertly coached us on the controls. Listen, learn, absorb and do.
    We've since had some more boating adventures but these two with H2O Watersportz were tops. We can't thank you enough and we will return!

    Great time for the 4 of us. Went up in 2's. It was great views and amazingly quiet. On way out to the "big" boat we saw some manatees and the captain stopped to let us see them. Everyone was super helpful and nice. We did it last year as well and still is just as much fun this time around.

    I've been fishing here in Florida my whole life. When I showed up at the boat and saw that it was a 'party fishing boat' (meaning fishing with lots of other people), I was concerned. Boy was I wrong. I made great NEW FRIENDS, and caught tons of fish. Lots of my friends think fishing is boring. Not on this boat. We caught lots of fish at every spot we stopped at. Captain Lance and Captain Brent took excellent care of everyone, and never made you feel bad when you got your line tangled. These young men were raised well by their mamas.

    Below is a picture I took that morning before the trip. Note the rainbow over the boat. That meant I was guaranteed to catch fish.

    I will be booking another trip!!!! Please support this local fishing family.

    We had so much fun on this tour. It was just my husband, myself, and 2 kiddos. We found giant sand dollars, sea urchins, starfish, sea horses, and saw tons of other ocean critters. Highly recommend! Also fair priced!

    We rented at Robinson Preserve

    Great paddling

    Cody explained the park so we could navigate successfully.

    Cody brought our kayaks in and out. Fitted our life vests. He was really customer friendly

    Thx Cody

    I went on Patsy's boat with 3 of my friends and we loved it! We really liked the fact that it was a small boat with a personal tour experience at a very reasonable price. She was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about the area. The best part was the fact that we not only saw a pod of playful dolphins, but Patsy was able to get them to follow in her wake and jump continuously right behind the boat! We were thrilled and had a great time!

    I spoke to Captain Bob, yesterday 7/28/18, and he is no longer operating in Bradenton Beach. He can soon be found in Key Largo with Rainbow Reef Dive Center.
    I wish him Good Luck!

    We had a great trip with Capt. Eric on June 10, 2020. He waited over an hour for us as we were traveling pretty far while on our vacation. We caught a shark, lots of grouper and snook. He is very laid back and helpful which made the trip really relaxing! Ask him to tell you some of his shark tales!

    We did a private charter for a "Memorial at Sea" where we scattered the ashes of a couple of family members. Private charters are done in the afternoon, after the daily fishing trip. Everything went very well. The boat was nice. No fish parts were around. The Captain and Crew were helpful, professional, and efficient. If you need a private charter for anything, (hopefully something a little happier), we can honestly recommend them.

    We first used Captain Josh's services last year when we stayed on Anna Maria Island. My wife and I brought another couple and we had the best fishing experience we could have imagined. We contacted him again a few weeks ago and got lucky and got a booking for us and one of our son's, his wife, and our grandson. Again it was a terrific experience, he was amazing with our grandson, six years old and a handful, he never once complained and we all had a great day. We hope to be able to book him again this fall. Thanks Captain for wonderful memories, Mark and Candie Morrison.
