We did the dolphin excursion on December 3rd. Captain Justin was fantastic he brought enthusiasm and corny jokes. It was low tide when we went out so spotting the dolphins was a bit difficult but we eventually got close to one and he made us all happy. For the price definitely worth an 1 and a half hour investment of... More

My boyfriend and I reserved a last minute sunset tour. We were able to book it the same day over the phone. It was absolutely beautiful... there was not one cloud in the sky, the water was calm. We saw plenty of dolphins during our outing... the conditions couldn't have been more perfect. We sailed with Captain Scott who was... More

Took the trip to see Dolphins and saw a bunch of them. Captain Justin spotted them rather quickly and knew how to approach them so that the dolphins litteraly touched our boat for some nice shots. The Captain then made them follow us speeding up the boat for some even better pictures of the dolphins jumping and playing in our... More

Wow! We had the ultimate show....a 6 dolphin pod that really put on a show for us. They were even wakeboarding on our wake. Captain Justin was great, although his jokes not so much! 😜 But honestly, he is very knowledgeable of the marine and bird life in the area. Great trip for little kids too! You really should give...

Captain Scott and First Mate Liz treated us to a wonderful excursion this evening! Not only were they knowledgeable about the wildlife and the history of the area, but they also worked hard to make sure we all enjoyed the dolphin that played around the boat. Captain Scott turned the boat so each side would get a good look and... More

A big thank you to Captain Scott for his commentary about the Bay and it's wildlife along with the views. Wonderfully relaxing and exciting. We were fortunate enough to have several dolphin sightings.

Great 1.5 hour tour of the bay. Very friendly and informative captain (retired fire chief from OH). Seemed to know everyone including the coast guard. Very clued into the fish, fauna and birdlife. Excellent little trip.
