Best boat tour ever! Randy was knowledgeable and personable. We visit Folly often and will definitely do the tour again. Great value when compared with other companies and a much better tour.

We had a great time out with Captain Randy. He was a top notch guy and very knowledgeable of the area. This was a great way to spend a few hours away from the beach but still be on the water.

Our family of 4 absolutely loved our tour! We saw over 20 dolphins, including 2 babies. Captain Randy was entertaining, knowledgeable, and seemed to enjoy himself. We will do this again next year!
