We had such a lovely family boat trip today with Captain Lee and First Mate Gina, we saw cute manatees and a family of dolphins. Tina kept us entertained with information and dry jokes 🤣 we felt really included and welcomed by this pair! They are true professionals and we would definitely return! We aren’t the type to ask for people to take photos on our behalf but Tina offered to take photos of us all together which we really appreciated 😍 Thankyou x

Did the Dolphin cruise with First Mate Gina and Capt. Tom. Had a wonderful time. Funny jokes, wildlife galore, and stopping to get seashells. Perfect way to get out out in the water! Relaxing fun cruise!

We booked a 2pm dolphin tour on 8/13/22. Our Captain was Tom & our tour guide was also a different wonderful gentleman named Tom. Both Tom’s were truly outstanding for the entire trip. I would recommend booking & doing all waivers online ahead of time to save time doing paperwork while checking in. Parking is easy & free for boat guests, it’s a close walk to the dock with clean bathrooms to use before boarding. Captain Tom manned the wheel & was super accommodating to the children on board & even offered / allowed each young child to steer the boat / watch the waterways with binoculars from the helm. Tour guide (younger / curly haired Tom) was SUPER knowledgeable about the history of the area, trends, tides & especially all the species of birds, mammals etc that we saw on our 90 minute boat tour. He also had a handful of corny / dad jokes that had everyone laughing & entertained for the entirety of the trip. The boat itself was no frills, but perfectly fine and we greatly appreciated the overhead coverage to protect us from the sun / heat. Bring food / drinks / cold water because we all know how hot it can get in FL! We saw several dolphins & many ocean loving birds on our tour. Loved that they made it a point to slow down & scoop up ocean litter with a net along our boat tour. We stopped for 10 minutes on the way back to the dock where everyone was given the option to de-board at a cute little sand barge / beach area. There Tom caught a few crabs & made it a point to share his knowledge with the guests about the species he caught. Encouraged guests to sea h for shells / sand dollars. These guys are friendly, knowledgeable & made the trip so much fun for all ages. They respect the ocean, the guests & are truly there to make sure everyone has a good, safe time. Make sure to bring some cash to tip these well deserving men for their hard work. Will definitely recommend & return in the future!! Well worth the $31/ person for the adventure.

Waiting for the tour we saw a sea turtle who was hanging out in the boat area & some pelicans.It was too bad we didn’t see anything on our tour though. We were in high tide, so I guess dolphins don’t come out to play during these times. Tried to spot manatees but no luck on those either.Stopping at the island, I was expecting a little more. We weren’t able to swim like I thought we could, just about Wade in to your shins and once you hit the drop off area, you had to stop because you weren’t allowed to go past it.It was nice of them though to let my son borrow a life jacket though from the boat. Much appreciated that.There was another passenger on the boat that found a crab on the island and showed my sons. That was cool!The first mate, Lindsey was very kind and funny. She does great at her job.
