If you enjoy a calm relaxing boat ride, and like seeing birds this is for you! This company operates a clean safe vessel and was very polite and preformed the tour as advertised. As others have posted it can be tricky to find the right place to park. Also, gps will likely misguide you. Overall a great time.

I also thought $100.00 was a bit high, but it was well worth the money as an educational and fun experience. The Captain is clearly very familiar with the waterways in Lemon Bay and with local history. He provided interesting information throughout the tour, the boat ride itself was pleasant, and we were able to see a wide variety of exotic birds and a pod of dolphins at the intersection of the bay and gulf. It was a thrilling experience that none of us will soon forget.

Captain Bruce is a very entertianing and knowledgeable guide. He knows both fauna and flora. He has been around long enough to know the individual osprey and dolphins and their habits. He even has named some of them. On our trip we saw lots of dolphins, including a couple of babies, two manatee (who looked like they were playing) as well as a Ron of various water fowl. Captian Bruce also knows the history of the land surrounding Lemon Bay. Ifmyou like nature and history this is money well spent!

I questioned whether or not our family of 4 (adults) should spring for the $25/pp nature tour, but let me tell you... it was worth every cent! Captain Bruce was more than pleasant, knowledgeable, and funny, and made the tour so enjoyable. After just pulling out of the slip we saw dolphins under the bridge, and proceeded to see more and more as we motored around Lemon Bay. We were able to see LOTS of pelicans, dolphins, a woodpecker, egrets, and a few osprey nests. Bring your binoculars and video camera if you have one... it's a bit tricky to get shots with your camera as the wildlife moves quickly!

We went on an enjoyable nature cruise of Lemon Bay. Captain Bruce entertained us with stories of the colorful history of the area and discussed the wildlife that lived there. Along the tour, we spotted dolphins, eagles, and an assortment of other wildlife. It was nice that Capt. Bruce would to take time to tell us about the wildlife and ensure we had enough time to take photos. This was a terrific way to spend an afternoon in Englewood.
