Had a fantastic trip, got to see lots of dolphins up close as well as a couple of manatees and plenty of birds. Great value for money and crew were well informed and provided great commentary.

Had a great time. They are very knowlegable about the area and wildlife. Spotted manatees and dolphins immediately and then went to a beautiful island for shelling. View was incredible! Would do this again and again! Price was very reasonable for a 3 hr excursion.More
