We came specailly from Orlando for the 3 pm boat tour. We booked a month in advance directly on their web site. When we showed up they told us we don't do 3 pm boat tours in the summer. Nowbody took the effort to contact us by mail in advance.

I'll have to agree with some of the other reviewers when they say "Nothing thrilling about this boat". I did expect a high speed thrill ride and ended up with a sightseeing tour. It is a nice boat ride and we did see a few dolphins and a turtle. The beach scenery is very pretty and it sure beats sitting... More

Looking at the review below I think your experience will vary depending on what Captain you have. I have been out with two on separate occaisions. My review is based on Captain Craig. I prefer more excitement and Captain Craig delivered. He went out of his way to make sure everyone was having a good time. I did not feel... More

This was a slow boat ride that hugged the cost of Cape Canaveral & Cocoa Beach for the main purpose of advertising their business!! Have been on... More
