We were so impressed with Capt. Jessica!!! Wonderful ride!! But the dolphins were incredible!!!!! She had them jumping so high that I thought they would jump over us in the boat that is how close they came!!! We went for a 6 hour cruise for my husbands birthday. What a treat!! After the dolphins we came to a small almost deserted island where we had a beach picnic with 2 friends. It was heavenly!!! The boat was immaculate!! With a bathroom!!! How awesome!! We can't wait to come back and take another cruise!!!

We had a fun time with Captain Jessica on our sightseeing tour. She was very knowledgeable
about the marine plant and wildlife as well as quite personable. It was choppy water out in the
Gulf and being avid boaters of the Chesapeake Bay, we were impressed with her piloting ability,
the seaworthiness, smooth ride and safety of her boat. What a great trip !

Captain Jessica was wonderful and so was her trip! It was so much fun to have our own "personal" tour and the boat all to ourselves! We were able to see dolphins- they played right next to the boat! Great trip for anyone who wants an easy day on the water and a Captain who is fun and genuine!

Captain Jessica provided a fantastic experience for our family. We had a party of two adults and one toddler for the two hour cruise. The boat and experience was exceptional!!! Captain Jessica provided marine and geographical education for us during the experience. Our son acted as co-captain and was given a toy while we searched for dolphins. We encountered three dolphins that swam in the current of the boat jumping in and out of the water! We think this captain has a few tricks up her sleeve! We call it the "Bob Marley" trick:) Thank you, Captain Jessica, for making this family vacation a moment we will always remember!

We spent a morning with Captain Jessica on a Dolphin and Shelling Cruise. Her boat was extremely comfortable with more than enough room for four adults and a two year old who ran front to back to front so he wouldn't miss anything. Captain Jessica is extremely knowledgeable about the wildlife, ecology and the area so not only did we have a great time, we learned things. She provides water and sodas and snacks for her guests. The two year old even got to drive her boat. We feel that she went above and beyond to make our cruise enjoyable! This is a must do and one that is on our list to do again when we go back to Sanibel Island.
