The highlight of our trip. The staff is amazing. They made sure we were able to go out even though the weather wasn't cooperating! They know their stuff. Post poned our departure and had amazing weather and sunset to die for. Our captain, Heather, was awesome. She was friendly, knowledgeable and made sure we had the best experience. Thank you Lazy Dog!


Nicole was excellent. Very informative and new all the cool spots. Parking was easy and the boat was right there. She took us around the mangroves and gave us a nice cayak to explore on our own. Very nice pontoon boat with a leisurely drive back and forth. What a great day, Thanks so very much!!!


Great day out at the sandbar with heather. Our family of four had a blast! My husband and I paddle boarded while our kids swam and tossed the football with Heather. She inflated a mat that the kids could float and jump off of. I would do this again in a heartbeat. She had plenty of water, was happy to take pictures for us and was all around very knowledgeable and a great captain. We felt so comfortable and really had a great time.


Nicole was our captain, she was amazing! Very helpful, friendly and knowledgable of the area. She took us to a great place and had plenty of gear for us. She even had a cooler with ice for our drinks and snacks. I would definately use this service again, it was a fabulous time!!!


The private trip was wonderful. Never seen anything so beautiful. Our guide Lindsay was a sweetheart. The scenic view was amazing. We got to get into the water and walk through the mangroves. It’s totally safe even if you can’t swim since the water is like knee deep. The water is clean and clear as crystal and it’s a good way to spend half a day in the ocean. Totally recommend it and would definitely come back next time


Five of us took what was billed as the "1/2 Day Eco Boat Adventure" - it was great. The Captain - Heather was awesome, she asked us what we wanted to do, we opted to go out to a beach / sand bar for the afternoon. We swam, walked on the beach and used the stand up paddle boards. We brought plenty of beer and sandwiches, the boat had a large cooler and plenty of ice. It was a nice ride out to the island, it was a weekend so there were a bunch of other boats - but it was not overly crowded as there was plenty of room at this island. Would highly recommend this trip.


Our captain took us to a great spot we swam, paddle board and we’re able to spot some stingrays and sharks. It was awesome we had so much fun!


We had a great time with Lindsey on the sandbar adventure. Everyone we dealt with was extremely nice. Lindsey was fun and just wanted to make sure we did everything we wanted to. We paddle boarded, went to a sandbar, and floated around on the big floating pad. We had a great time, and I would highly recommend Lindsey and Lazy Dog.


Heather was an incredibly knowledgeable Captain and super friendly. She seemed to anticipate our adventure needs and gave us opportunities to provide input in our experience. We had a great time and will definitely be back again!


What a picture perfect trip! We can’t wait to do it again! We brought our pups and they were living their best life and so were we. The island we went to was pristine, like something out of a magazine. Our captain Lindsay was great too, took great care of us and made sure we had a great time. If you are considering Lazy Dog, DO IT! You will not be disappointed! Private charter is the way to go 100%
