We saw Dolphins in our eco-tour and a manatee and Osprey and what we think was Stephen King's tower of his home. We had a good time the kids got to see a lot and they provided us "beverages" :) and the crew was pleasant.

We went back to Siesta Key Marina because of our great experience last year (see my review from March 2017). The boat we received this year was old, the steering was so loose that it was required constant adjustments just to keep it going straight....More

Onsite staff was informative, helpful, and friendly. Equipment was in decent shape and clean. Parking was kind of awful, unfortunately. Precious few free or customer spots, and paid lot across the street takes advantage of this by changing $5 an hour.
