Joanna and Jeff gave us a great half day out on the water. We didn't book a private tour but it turned out to only be our group of three, so we got a private one. The water was very murky the day were went because they were dredging to get rid of the algae in the area, but we still managed to see a couple of manatees. They weren't playful with us like we were hoping but we got to see them in the water. They also took us around to the other part of the area where we elected to swim in a crystal clear spring, instead of looking for more manatees. That was actually the highlight of the trip. Maybe when we go again we will be able to see and play with more manatees, but that is how nature goes. We are looking forward to going out with them again when we get back down to Florida to visit our friend.

Scalloped for the first time w Double J. They made it easy for us - we met them at the dock, they had our gear ready, then brought us to an area full of scallops. It was nice that they shucked our scallops for us too. I would definitely book w them again.

Finally went scallopping with Captain Jim after two weather-related cancellations, had a great time searching for scallops on a comfortable boat with a captain who has good knowledge of the grounds. We will be back next season and I highly recommend Double J Adventures of Crystal River, Florida for scallopping trips. Thank you Captain Jim.

Good time, hit our limit by noon and went back in for a swim in the spring before packing up. Great day on the water. Would definitely book again. Another plus, Capt. J cleaned our scallops too!

We took a trip with Captain Mark back in July. He made sure we got scallops at every stop. He even stopped at this underwater rock formation for us to check out while he cleaned our scallops. He was very knowledgeable about scallops and the area which was great! There were 2 elderly couples on the boat with us that didn't get many scallops and the Captain gave them all of the ones he caught which was fine with us since we had plenty. I guess usually he would split his between the groups. We ran thru your typical Florida afternoon rainstorm which was nice, it actually cooled us off. Great trip, great time, great Captain, we would highly recommend this team of Adventurers to all!
