Wonderful Tour!

We had a great tour with Captain Jack. We saw eagles, osprey, white egrets, blue heron, tarpon. No dolphin or manatee seen this trip. Captain Jack was very knowledgeable and personable. We enjoyed our entire trip. Highly recommended. We called on Sunday morning for a tour and an hour later we were on the water.

Thank you for the Sunset Tour. We really appreciate the tour just for us. The service was perfect, very informative, very friendly, familiar atmosphere. Perfect if you are looking for smaller boats. We will definitely come back for the dolphin tour.

Grandkids, Dolphins, Manatees and Captain Jack, what a great day!!!!

This was our 3 trip out with Captain Jack. We had our daughter and son in law and the grandkids on their first excursion !! We ate lunch at Cabbage Key which is always a hit, and had Key Lime Pie courtesy of Captain Jack. This is by far the best boat charter you could go on. The grandchildren were in awe of the dolphins jumping in the wake of the boat, and they also loved seeing the Manates, as did the rest of us. This wonderful day was capped off by Captain Jack letting the kids ( some adults to) pick a prize out of his treasure chest!!! Thank-you again Captain Jack for helping us to make more lasting memories!!! We’ll be back again next spring!!!

We came down from North Dakota to spend a few days. My daughters all wanted to see Dolphins. So I called to see if we could get a tour and Jack said what do you want to see? He said come on down. It was the best tour I have ever been on he was a amazing guide! We seen the Dolphins ,swam on the beach and just had a blast! I highly recommend this tour Jack was the best! We will definitely be back.

Great way to spend half a day boating with a friendly and knowledgeable captain, Captain Jack!

Captain Jack is very friendly and shares his love of the area and its history. To top it all off, you’re almost 100% sure of seeing dolphins and having them race along the side of the boat. Beautiful! We were so impressed after our first visit with our family during our 3 week vacation, that we returned with friends during our 3rd week here. Highly recommended! You will not be disappointed.
