I believe you have us mixed up with another company. we don't accept online reservations and don't charge anything until on boat. would not put a film crew ahead of customers! our booking number is 850.238.5230, the company that did this deserves the review not...More

What separates this boat tour from the jet ski, catamaran and sail boat tours is that it is disabled friendly. You are given steps and a helping hand into the boat, and the seats are very heavily padded to provide extra comfort. After several real...More

It was a good relaxing tour. Saw lots of dolphins. It was short, only 1 1/2 hours. Maybe good for some, wish it was a bit longer. $15.00 was a good price for it though. Absolutely would do it again.
