“Manatees on the Lagoon”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Five of us enjoyed a fabulous morning on the Indian River Lagoon today. We saw manatees, jellyfish, stingrays, and all sorts of beautiful birds - in trees, flying, and wading in the water. Capt. Christy was a wonderful guide - knows so much about the lagoon - and told it all in an entertaining and informative manner. My six-year-old granddaughter was delighted with the trip - seeing the manatees and especially the surprises that Capt. Christy had in store for her. I'm sure we'll do another tour with her when we have more out-of-town guests.

“Christy never fails to educate and entertain!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

This was our 2nd trip with Captain Christy, both times we were treated to her great sense of humor and vast knowledge of the Sebastian Inlet. She is an accomplished photographer and manages to capture great memories from our trips. Christy's love for the area and her clear expertise on all things historical, marine and aviary make this a fun learning experience for young and old alike. We'll be back again to go on one of her other tours!

“Romantic outing for two”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

My partner and I took a cruise in August of 2013 and we loved it. Capt Christy was a joy and very knowledgeable about the amazing creatures we encountered. Her boat is beautiful. We chose the Sebastian Inlet Long Point tour and we were quite surprised at the number of dolphins, manatee and stingray we got to see. It was spectacular. The location was easy to find and the boat was very accessible. We will be planning another trip soon and highly recommend it.

“Excellent Guided Eco Boat and Kayak Tours and Rentals”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

If you are looking for a fabulous eco friendly and personal boat tour experience you will find it with Capt. Christy's "Casual Cruisin' " which sails out of the Sebastian waterfront. Capt. Christy Lenz is a knowledgeable and entertaining local guide to the incredibly beautiful and biologically diverse Indian River Lagoon which is home to bottlenose dolphin, manatee and alligators along with many species of exotic birds and fish. Casual Cruising offers "up close and personal" sightseeing tours along the Indian River Lagoon to Pelican Island, our nation's first wildlife refuge, Sebastian Inlet/Long Point and the freshwater St. Sebastian River Jungle Cruise. Tours can be arranged to include Island Picnics, Spoil Island Shuttles and Sunset Cruises. In addition to the comfortable 6 passenger 24 foot pontoon tour boat, Casual Cruisin' also offers both kayak and stand-up board rentals along with guided kayak tours. Capt. Christy is also a talented photographer and photographs of your trip are available for purchase. My husband and I have frequently enjoyed Capt. Christy's tours and always make it a point to book a tour whenever we have guests. We have taken many boat tours but Capt. Christy is absolutely the very best and our guests have all had a memorable and enjoyable time. Oh, and by the way, she speaks fluent dolphin!
