Mike is an excellent captain. He took very good care of us and slowed down for wake from other boats. Our comfort was always his concern. He took us to an excellent plac to collect shells. It was amazing. He even showed us a dolphin and got it to follow us. It was jumping and flipping in our wake. Go with Mike and you will have a blast!

What a treat for a family from Kansas!!! Captain Mike was great! He helped plan our trip because our family had never been to Florida and didn't know what to ask for. We went on a 6-hour trip because we wanted to try to see dolphins, do some shelling and fishing. Mike knew exactly what he was doing because he was able to coax some dolphins along with us and then speed the boat up and we were able to see them follow us and jump in the wake. During our trip to Hickory Island for shelling, he pointed out some rays swimming in the water. My husband, son and 11-year old granddaughter went fishing. Mike was so knowledgeable about where to go to catch certain fish and took them to 3 different spots. He worked with my granddaughter teaching her to bait her pole and she caught more fish than anyone else! He was able to take them to a spot where they caught some red snapper that we cooked for dinner that night. It seems expensive but it was worth every penny for us!!!

We had a great time! Captain Mike was wonderful. He arrived early and was waiting for us at the dock. We saw some dolphins and took a detour to follow them. Went to two great spots to find shells and walk a beautiful beach. My teenagers said it was their favorite activity of the week!

We did the shelling trip with Captain Mike. Wind made it the surf on the Gulf too big for comfortable sailing there, so he took us to the back of the island which gave us a 100 yd walk or so to the gulf beach, but made for a much more comfortable sail. We had a good day.

Thank you very much for the review. I wish it wasn’t so windy that day but I’m glad the tide allowed us to access the shelling from the bay side. I enjoyed meeting you all, hope to see you again.

We spent a morning with Captain Mike shelling and it was great. We filled our bags with awesome shells and saw dolphins and manatees galore. A super easy yet fabulous half day charter ... couldn’t have asked for anything more.

We went kayaking with the manatees. Steven Denmark was our guide. My husband and I went on this kayaking trip last year and really enjoyed Steven and his dog so we requested him again. This year we took our girls so they could experience it as well. Steven was very informative and answered any questions we had. He was very knowledgeable also. He made it a point to look for animals to point out to us and explain more about them, i.e. blue crab, osprey, Hurricane bird, blue heron, etc. He also explained the footprint of the manatees so we knew what to look for. We saw several, some up close. My family enjoyed it very much.
