We took the two-hour dolphin and nature tour. Our captain Charlie and guide Breezy knew the waters, flora, and fauna. We learned about dolphins and their amazing lives, and enjoyed watching two fishing. It was a great trip.

There is a covered area for shade and comfortable seating. I would suggest calling ahead about minimim age. This is about a four hour cruise. Enjoy your time on the gulf.
