  • We had a really great boat trip yesterday with Captain Thad. He was polite and friendly and gave us a lot of insights into the scenery and nature in the area. Despite the slightly rainy weather we had a really great time and saw 10+ dolphins that came right up to the boat. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.
  • One of the most memorable tours we’ve had in quite some time! The staff including Jim; our Captain Thad; in addition to three special guests that accompanied us made for a memorable day. Our “vanishing island tour” was everything and more! We learned from experts sharing the island’s history and insights about the changes that resulted from recent hurricanes. The excursion to and from the island also results in several dolphin encounters. Upon arriving, you feel like an explorer uncovering an uncharted island full of sand dollars and shells. The added find of “shark teeth” made our sons day! We truly appreciated the time on the water and spending it with such great hosts! A 5 Star rating from the three of us!
