Our small group of three was treated to a wonderful two hour trip with Captain Quinn (thankfully no connection with Captain Quint from Jaws.) We could move around to see the manatees and dolphins right next to the boat! He kept us busy with shell collecting, a little fishing, and a lot of information about the area! Well worth the...

Captain Quinn took our family on a great tour. We found dolphins, went fishing in several locations, and collected enormous seashells. He's very funny and great with young kids. We went home with memories of a lifetime and fun stories to share. I highly recommend this charter.

We really enjoyed the tour and saw manatees, heron, dolphin, osprey, cormorants, eagles, and found some nice shells. He provides water and beverages for guests and will take your picture for you on the trip. The picture we took tell the story! We had a great time.

Captain Quinn was the best guide! He found Manatees, Dolphins, osprey, great blue heron, and even let us catch a fish! He was knowledgeable and fun to talk to. He pointed out sites along the way and took us to find shells. You will enjoy your tour with Quinn--just getting out on the water with cool sea breezes was the... More

Captain Quinn goes out of his way to make sure the tour is wonderful. At a time of year when the manatees are hard to find, he managed to locate a few. They even came close to the boat. Such magnificent gentle giants. We also spotted a few dolphins and was able to catch a fish or two( catch and... More

We ( a family of 5) went out on the 9am trip on the 30th of August and it was fantastic. We saw manatees, lots of dolphins, loads of bird life and all three boys caught a fish ( on rods that Captain Quinn supplied). After a week of visiting the Orlando parks this has been the kids favourite activity.

Forget the bigger boats, go for the smaller ones and get the personal touch to your tour From letting the children fish and catch a jack fish to exploring Quins, the captain, knowledge of the location this is a very special tour. We were lucky enough to see both a small pod of dolphins plus 7/8 manatee in a herd,... More

After 2 weeks visiting the parks there is no better thing to do than go for a trip with Capt Quinn. We did a 4 hour trip and our group of 6 all wanted to stay out longer. We saw Manatees, Dolphins and some great fantastic species of birds. These included, belted kingfisher, osprey,frigate bird and Roseate spoonbill.

This was the highlight of our vacation. My sons look forward to the fishing and each caught fish and each caught more than one. My wife and daughter wanted to see the dolphins and manatees of which we saw many. Captain Quinn was very knowledgeable and respectful of the animals. We saw a baby dolphin and he made sure not...
