Captain CJ was very informative, nice and funny. Saw many dolphins, learned about space station and sunset was gorgeous!


We were scheduled to take the 2 hour sunset tour and encountered a booking problem. The captain/ owner of the tour company went above and beyond to get us a refund. Even with his busy schedule he made several calls to Viator/TripAdvisor to ensure that we received our refund. I look forward to our next visit to Merritt Island and will be booking this tour for sure !


Shortly after booking, our guide CJ called me to follow up. He also texted the location to meet. We arrived at the meeting point early and CJ was waiting for us, with his "crew" Alex. They gave us a thorough tour of the basin, talking about the history. We saw a group of manatees, and he explained their behavior. This was the first time my wife and I saw manatees. We also saw a number of dolphins. The whole tour was knowledgeable and informative.


We are a family with teenage daughters who took an evening boat tour with Captain Don to experience the Bioluminescence in the Banana River area. It was amazing! So peaceful, Captain Don's experience and knowledge was both reassuring and interesting and ensured we found the bioluminescence and a few animals! The boat is brilliant - a proper boat - so we could travel quite far up the river and tributaries. (We didn't fancy kayaking in the dark with our daughters) It's one of our top memories of visiting Florida - thank you Captain Don - 5/5 !


We got to see a large group of Dolphins and manatees, Thanks very much to Captain Barry. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you for a wonderful experience


Communication was excellent! There was impending weather in the area and they stayed in touch with us early so that we could make early changes in our plans so as not to let the weather disrupt the day!


Captain Jayne rocks! Awesome private sunset cruise for our 25th Wedding Anniversary celebration. We had trouble getting there and we're a few minutes late. Capt. Jayne was super helpful and patient. Definitely recommend!! Even snapped a dolphin in the clouds pic! Saw dolphins, blue heron that caught a juvenile ray, other birds and a beautiful sunset! Perfect! Thanks, Capt Jayne! Love that we had a New England connection!


Captain CJ and Jayne were great hosts and guides with vast knowledge and pride in the wildlife and estuary. Very comfortable Pontoon boat. Loved the Dolphins and dive-bombing pelicans. Beautiful weather added to a memorable and relaxing trip. We would gladly take another trip!
