Such a great time! We went fast and saw dolphins and had a great guide! He was so knowledgeable and confident. We walked the sandbar and found lots of treasures.

6 of us, ranging in age from Golden Oldie to 6, took the 2 hour trip to "Vanishing Island" on June 11 with Captain Jamie. We all had an amazing time! The dolphins were right next to our zodiac, including mommy and baby. We even got to see a dolphin group capturing a fish for lunch! Also saw some bonnethead(?) shark. Jamie's knowledge of the area, birds, fish, and history was all presented in a personal narrative that captivated everyone. Stepping out of the boat onto a sandbar to look for creatures in tide pools was a new experience, too. Found a baby starfish, multiple crabs, and sanddollars. It was a great adventure, and the zodiac ride over waves was fun for all.

We were there Memorial Day weekend 2015. This was our second outing, first one was about two years ago. This time we booked a 90 minute tour and it was totally fun. We went with our 6 and 4 yo and they had lots of questions for captain Jamie and he was very sweet and engaging with them. He pretended to be a pirate which they loved, and right now keep watching the video of the story he told us. We also enjoyed the lesson about jelly balls! We plan to go again next year.

We called Tom before 8:00 am and he got us on a tour that afternoon. What a wonderful experience for myself and my son. Matt, our guide was full of info and facts of the sights and area. Also very knowledgable about the ecosystem.

The kids on board loved the boat ride! Our visit to the sandbar allowed us to stretch our legs and find sand dollars. We saw loads of Dolphins and saw some spectacular sights. Thank you Commander Zodiac, Tom and Matt! The 2 hour tour was perfect for all ages.

Awesomeness !! My new favorite word.. I remember taking your reservation that morning and was happy we had space for you on our 2 hour trip. I'm glad you and your son were able to share such a memorable experience together. I will let Matt know how much fun you had.

Thanks
Tom
