We've booked a dolphin cruise with this group in the past, and it was great. Let me tell you about their latest nonprofit endeavor called "Florida Water Warriors." It's a Community Science Cruise, and WE LOVED IT. We went on their inaugural launch, and this hands-on initiative is just the thing for all ages learning and understanding the delicately balanced factors that make a healthy waterway and a good time at the beach. Using a mix of sophisticated digital equipment, microscopes, and gross-motor-skill bucket drops, participants like my third grade son became immediately engaged in the data collection and plankton identification effort. From land lubbers and water lovers to oceanic experts, this cruise is a memorable and authentic experience that will convert the tourist into active participant in taking care of Florida's water and wildlife resources. The knowledgeable and charismatic crew captivated and educated us with a backdrop of sea breezes, gulls, and gentle lapping waves in the light of the golden afternoon. My son was instantly 'hooked' on marine science! To cap off the gorgeous excursion, we were visited by a green sea turtle at the dock. Book now because you can't beat the price. Free.

We go on a sunset cruise every year and we’re a little worried that it wouldn’t be as good this year due to the state of things. We were wrong. It was just as great as always! Very informative tour that doesn’t constantly swamp you with information. Just some facts here and there about the city as you cruise the harbor and see the sights from a different view. There is also a bar on board. Our family also rented kayaks for a couple hours. Another great experience we will never forget. If you want to do a sightseeing cruise, this is the one to do!

We were lucky enough to have a full moon cruise with Fourth of July fireworks. What a combination! The entire crew was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. This family run business is an excellent choice with Kevin, A.J. and Captain Mike on board! Thank you guys for making our cruise fun and memorable. Can’t wait to cruise with you again for the Night of Lights! Or we may just plan a trip to St. Augustine for a sunset cruise! Thanks again guys!
