Great adventure

Our boat captain was extremely knowledgeable and engaged, we saw dolphins in three different areas, tons of different types of birds and learned a lot about the ecosystem and area. The seashell beach was amazing, the kids played in the water and even found two sand dollars! Great experience, fun had by all.

Captain Ed found a few dolphins and got 2 dolphins to chase us. They jumped up behind the boat, it was Awesome. We also saw a manatee, birds, he even tried to save a bird which had been shot. Kim told us a lot about the area, she was great to talk to and Captain Ed were both excellent hosts and very knowledgeable on everything. I am visiting from PA and loved the trip, especially looking for shells. It was Awesome and would do it again.

Dolphins! Shark! Shells! And more!

Our captain and co-captain were fabulous! They were very knowledgeable, and did everything they could to make our experience memorable, fun and educational and really cared about the animals and environment! We got to spend time watching a large shark swimming on a sand bar, dolphins having fun and newly-hatched water birds in their nest. We found wonderful shells, starfish, egg casings, and sand dollars to bring home (although we did not see any of the huge shells pictured on the website.). Our 5 and 9-year old grandchildren had a blast and loved every minute of the 2-hour adventure. The only downside ( STRESSFUL!) was arriving early only to find there was no parking and the marina staff would not let us wait for ones to open up; we had to call the phone number on the website, leave the marina, and, when we returned, were eventually led to an off-site parking. This situation should be explained beforehand; the rest of the day was beyond perfect!

Dolphins playing in the wake of our boat; captain (& assistant), shells & birds all wonderful - as was the Viator person who helped me with scheduling the tour. Directions re where to meet the captain were fine but parking was not explained & a royal pain in the neck -

Great trip. Awesome captain and crew ladies. We encountered a couple of dolphins and were given great information about the wildlife. We were taken to a sand bank to do some shelling and watched the sunset on our way back. We thoroughly enjoyed it.
