Captain Sherman was the perfect host for the perfect tour!!! We had a great afternoon and saw dolphins as promised. We were also provided some great information on the area and its history!! Doesn't get any better than that for us. It definitely was a highlight of our vacation and we highly recommend to all to take the tour with Captain Sherman.
Thanks Sherman, we will be back to see you again!!!

Title says it all. Despite COLD day the boat provided good shelter from the wind and the ride was very calm in Sarasota's lovely bay. Captain Sherman an excellent naturalist and tour guide--wow, some of those Lemon Bay homes were extraordinary. ..and the birds and dolphin were a special treat.

We went on a 90 minute afternoon trip, and were assured we were 100% certain to see dolphins. We weren't disappointed! They seemed to be attracted to our boat and it was lovely to see mothers and calves playing right next to us. Captain Sherman is very friendly, funny and knowledgeable and gave us a great tour of the bay and around Anna Maria island, showing us birds, fish and other wildlife, telling us anecdotes on local history and goings-on. Good value for a memorable experience. Thanks!
