My wife and I along with our son, DIL, and two grandchildren took the sunset tour last evening. It was spectacular! We were able to see so many dolphins, many very close to the boat. We saw some amazing birds and bird sanctuaries. Our Captain and First Mate were great. I look forward to doing this again! I should add... More

A nephew and niece of mine visited and on short notice decided they would like to fish on a boat. Well, this isn't always the best way to experience gulf fishing, but we couldn't get on a private boat very quickly. We decided to take the morning trip and the boat was very busy with guests, but we enjoyed our... More

Went out on there 63 hour deep drop trip. These are class people, from top to bottom. Checking in, Tammy the cook. Both Captains and the mates. However there are opportunities for improvement. The trip advertises that you will have an opportunity to catch mutton and mangrove snappers. In fairness to them the captain told us before departing that that... More

My friend and I saw the signs for the dolphin cruise and we just had to go. The staff was very helpful. Tickets were $19.50 per person for a 1 1/2 hour boat ride. I was expecting the price to be higher so I was happy with this. There were 3 dolphin cruise trips per day. The boat was spacious,... More

DO NOT USE THEIR WEBSITE TO BOOK ONLINE!! We made reservations online for a party of six the day before we wanted to go on the sunset cruise, showed up 30 minutes before the boat was supposed to leave and was told they didn't have our reservation and there was nothing they could do about it. The first woman we... More

I personally have never seen this or even heard of it before when a guest completes an online reservation they get to a confirmation screen that gives a confirmation number (you get here once your...

The trip was good and very nice but the captain and helper was very arrogant and rude, not a friendly pair. It was OK otherwise.

Visited Hubbard's Marina and did the evening sunset cruise which provided free beer and wine. Saw several dolphins and a beautiful sunset. Fun crew and good time.
