We had such a good time! We took the Eco Tour. Captain Sam and First Mate Danielle were awesome! We went on the 2:00 tour and we saw 5 or 6 Manatees and we saw Dolphins playing as well. First Mate Danielle who was also the narrator on the boat, was knowledgable about everything, the area, the animals, and the plants. Captain Sam was so good with the two kids on the boat. One cute little boy with blonde curly hair sat back there with her and she answered all his questions and let him stay there. This company even keeps tracks of the dolphins and other wildlife and reports any new sightings or sick animals to the conservation folks. You could tell they both loved their jobs, the wildlife, and the area. We had a great time. The prices are great as well. We made a day of it and went to Marine Science Center, the bird rehabilitation center, which was awesome, and then to the Park there. For 25 dollars a person, you can take the tour then visit the Science Center and Bird Center for 5 dollars. If you park outside the park and walk its free, the park has a beach and the jetty. If you park inside its 10 dollars. I would recommend this Company to anyone. Its a nice way to spend the day.
Took the "Eco" tour. It was VERY dissapojnting. No manatees, no dolphins and no sea turtles, not even a stingray. Nothing promised in the brochure occurred during our trip.. Island stop was disappointing as well. The shells were pitiful and were more clam and oyster shells than anything. The captain and first mate seemed more concerned about talking to each other than actually looking out for dolphins and manatees. They did not bother to use the on board PA system (was it broken?). Other reviews on this site mention a "Captain John". He was nowhere to be found on our tour. Maybe he sold out and moved on? No parking on site. They made us park down the road and take a golf cart back to the sign in location. After the tour was over the golf cart was NOWHERE to be found. My family was left to walk back to the car (good thing no-one in our party had mobility issues). I was also put off by the "we will not sue" disclosure we were forced to sign - BIG RED FLAG there. I understand they have to cover their assets, but surely theres a more professional way to do so. Two thumbs down.
Before you read my review you should know Im in no way affiliated with the company. Check Trip Advisor for a few reviews Ive done there. Best. Boat. Tour. Ever. Captain John with his punny humor, charisma, knowledge and experience led our expedition. His willingness to stop the boat for almost 15 minutes so we didnt just slowly idle past something we saw in the distance created an amazing moment for all of us. Because of it, we saw Dolphins. A BABY DOLPHIN! Up close! A lot of others on the boat saw a manatee. I didnt get to see him or her because I got caught up in the beautiful view all around me and the feel of the of the boat moving through the water. I love being out on a boat and dont get to do it very often... not being a millionaire.
We did a 4 hour fishing charter with Captain John. It was FANTASTIC!!! So much fun! We caught 9 species of fish and saw a ton of dolphins and cool birds. We were all fairly experienced fisherman, but even beginners could have caught a fish and had a great time. It was like freshwater lake fishing on salt water. That was great because we didnt want to go deep sea fishing and get sea sick. We had an awesome time.
Very Nice people. We have been there twice and both times they were very friendly. We rented 3 paddle boards and brought 2 of our own. The gentlemen there even loaded our giant boards back on the car for us when it was time to leave. Also, great that there is a restaurant and bar next door so you can relax and eat when your finished. I would definitely recommend this company.
We chose to be there before 9am. Staff went above & beyond. Extremely professional & friendly. Went above & beyond in many areas. My group chose to parasail, saw dolphins, & purchased a photo & video package. I chose to kayak by myself & thoroughly enjoyed the solitude. Saw a manatee. The water ways felt safe & werent at all intimidating. I will be back for sure.
Went on ec. tour today. $100 for 4 of us. No dolphins, sea turtles or manatees. Found 5 small shells on island. Understand not seeing dolphins, etc but the island was worthless. I dont blame captain or crewmate but no shells sucked. Cant recommend. Ask for some guarantee if i go or save money.
Took my 2 daughters (8&3) They loved every minute of it & they let them drive the boat for a couple minutes!!! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Seen dolphins and birds and found a sand dollar on the little island we stopped at. Would defiantly do it again.
Nice little manatee/dolphin tour on the water. Very reasonably priced and our captain and first mate were very knowledgeable. I would definitely come back to try a fishing charter or paddle boat tour next time.

Me and my wife did the tandem parasailing. Friendly staff and beautiful scenery! The ride itself was unreal! I would definitely recommend this for a fun day in the sun packed with adrenaline.
Captain John was great. Very informative and fun tour. Saw some dolphins playing and learned a lot. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for something aquatic to do.
Family had a great time. Saw quite a bit of wild life. The team was excellent and the price for the ride was reasonable. Highly recommend it.
Didnt see much wildlife except for some dolphins and birds. It was rather boring they seem to concentrate on the houses that were in the area
Such an amazing call. He didnt have what was needed, but he gave me many options. I had an amazing day thanks to this companys owner.
This was the best experience and the staff was so happy and nice, they took us swimming and took pictures! Very nice people!!!
