Make sure you want to go bc they won't let you cancel your reservation. We were excited to see dolphins and the sunset but that wasn't the case. The clouds blocked the view and we managed to get one glimpse of one dolphin trailing a nearby speed boat. The ride itself was extremely slow and rather painful due to nonstop... More

1 hour rental in Little Sarasota Bay on a day that wind was high and gulf was very choppy. Tour operator was honest about what to expect on bay south of Siesta Key and we had a great time.

Booked this for a Bachelorette party and it was AWESOME! Cruised around and spotted a small pod of dolphins hunting along the seawall and then went to a sandbar to watch the most amazing sunset. On the way back was dancing, fun, and laughs! Highly recommend this to anyone planning a group outing.

The boat ride out to the bay was pleasant, and my daughters were extremely excited. When they went into the air, they screamed, but quickly got over their apprehension to take in the vista and enjoy the ride. It ended up being a great experience for them, and I think they'll remember it always!

The captain and mates were great. The shore crew even directed us to a parking spot. We saw some dolphins and a nice sunset and people playing on sand bars, as well as, some beautiful bay front homes. I only wish they had a little more variety in drinks.

Hi Glennora and thank you for the kind words and nice review of our Sunset Cruise. We do offer complimentary beer and wine and try to meet the taste needs of the majority of our customers, but due to a very limited amount of space (coolers), we cannot have all brands. We do invite everyone to bring their own beverage... More
