Captain Potter was a great guide for our afternoon on One Love. We all enjoyed being on the boat with sightseeing, tubing and watching dolphins jump through our boat's wake!

We appreciate you taking the time to leave a five star review. Captain Potter is a lot of fun and always shows his charter guests a fun time! He is amazing with the bottlenose dolphins too and gets them to jump in his boat wake all the time. We hope that you come back to our beautiful paradise and book with Kokomo Charters again!

I cannot say enough good things about Captain John and Ali! This was our second trip out with them and it was absolutely fantastic! We saw TONS of dolphins and even had some play in the wake of the boat! We decided to add the campfire and it was the best decision we could have made! It was such a cool experience to have the sand bar all to ourselves once the sun went down! I would HIGHLY recommend adding this to your sunset cruise! They truly go above and beyond to make every trip a special! We cannot wait to come back next year!

We love when our charter guests come back again and again, it means we are doing something right! Our campfire/sunset cruises are becoming very popular on Kokomo Charters and it is the only place in Sarasota County, that you can have a campfire on the beach. Campfire, Sunset, S'mores, Drinks, Music, Games, Friends & Family = Epic Time! We appreciate the wonderful review and can't wait to have the family out on the boat next year!

We went out on the 31' "Good Vibes" boat and we had an absolutely wonderful time. Before our excursion, Ali worked with us through questions about scheduling and number of passengers. Today, Captain John and Ali were ready to go early and took care of our every need. We were able to use their coolers, towels and other amenities. Ali recommended the 4 hour tour for our group that included children ages 10 - 18. We enjoyed shelling on a sandbar, saw dolphins, and were able to paddleboard for a while. John and Ali were friendly and attentive. We could not have enjoyed our day any more - unless they had allowed us to stay all day, which we would have happily done. Now we're excited to receive our photos (digital and drone), to document the day. We highly recommend a charter on "Good Vibes" with Captain John and Ali - treat yourself!

T-Pain’s got nothing on Ali and John. My two tweens and I had a wonderful afternoon people watching, paddle boarding and collecting shells. Drone photos of the fam has got us all singing: “I’m on a boat, y’all”. Loved it. Highly recommend. Bring sun screen!!!
