“Fantastic every time!!”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

This was not my first time going out with Captain Corey and will absolutely NOT be my last. I have been out with him with my family - including children under 10 - and this time with 2 friends. Corey is so knowledgeable not only about the wildlife, but also about the history of the area. I learn something new every time. He goes out of his way to be sure that everyone is safe, comfortable and gets to do what they are interested in. We saw bald eagles, pelicans, dolphins, sea life, shells, beautiful scenery and even got to help as Corey rescued a pelican with a hook stuck in its beak. It was an experience of a lifetime, yet for Corey it's just another day at work. His interest in preserving the wildlife and environment is obvious, but not overpowering. He is personable and professional and goes out of his way to make the experience a memorable one. I absolutely reccomend Off the Hook Adventures as part of any visit to the area.

“Capt. Corey”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Last February (2012) we booked a last minute trip w. Off the Hook not knowing anything about Capt. Corey. He called us right back and we were able to charter the whole boat for an afternoon sail. It was a wonderful time, and everyone from the kids to the grandparents enjoyed themselves. Corey took his time showing us all the wildlife in the area, and we could not have been more pleased. We hope to do it this February on our next trip to Marco Island....you won't be disappointed.

“Highlight of Marco Island trip!”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

My fiance and I set sail with Captain Corey back in July and it was the highlight of our trip to Marco Island. You can immediately tell Corey is a nature lover and enthusiast. This passion coupled with his knowledge of the wildlife and island made him a spectacular tour guide. He truly cares about Marco and all its creatures. We saw birds, sea turtles, fish, crabs, you name it, and even got to do some shelling. Pedro was my favorite! He's an injured pelican that Captain Corey basically adopted. Don't miss out on this adventure! It truly was off the hook!

“Highlight of our holiday”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Geoff Kathy and Anna,
We took a morning cruise with Captain Corey and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.Once the sails are up it is quiet,peaceful and relaxing.We saw lots of pelicans including Pedro who only has one wing,i think he is Coreys favourite.We also saw dolphins,jumping fish,an eagle on its nest and various other birds.Corey dropped us off on an uninhabited island to go shelling which was great as the sand was so white and the shells amazing.It was a wonderful trip which was enhanced by Capt Coreys knowledge and enthusiasm and he was a great host!

“Such a great experience !!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This trip was so great. Well worth the $200 for our family of four. We left at 11:45 am and returned at 2:30 pm. The birds were great....especially the bald eagles in the nest and Pedro (an injured pelican that Capt. Corey has "adopted". We saw a couple of dolphins, many "jumping" fish, and even a sea turtle. We stopped at two different uninhabited islands to collect seashells and sand dollars. It was such a fun time for our family. Our 5 and 9 year old kids were so attentive to the sealife and the history of Marco Island. Thanks so much to Capt. Corey !!!
