Dolphins and bald eagles on a fast and comfortable boat!
FREDRIK_B
, Nov 2021
We had a great time with captain Dave on our off-season dolphin watching trip! Our 5 year old got super excited seeing dolphins up close in the water and we learned a lot from our knowledgeable guide. We got to observe dolphins stranding schools of fish and feeding on them twice, saw a spooky live oak tree, perfect for Halloween (as it was) and then were treated to admiring two majestic bald eagles sitting together on a pine tree. Thank you for a great time on your fast and comfortable boat captain Dave! We would definitely recommend this experience.

It sounds like you guys checked all the boxes on your somewhat spooky private charter - hahahaha. I'm so glad that you were able to see eagles and dolphins with the added treat of catching the dolphins strand feed - that's a real bonus:)

We had an absolutely amazing time. 10/10 Would recommend and will use again. Captain Dave was awesome. We saw dolphins, learned history and saw a bald eagle. It was the highlight of our trip and we can not wait to come back and do it again. The smaller personal tour was so much more relaxing! Thanks for an amazing time and making the girls day on the boat!

This is an awesome way to enjoy a relaxing time dolphin watching! Captain Neil was great. I would never consider a commercial dolphin cruise after the experience of a small boat and being able to be a few feet from them. Very respectable owner and great run operation!

Weekend Getaway for family

We had a wonderful time on our tour with CPT David. They were very organized and thorough so we didn't have to guess about times or where to meet. The boat was new, clean and super comfy. Particularly in this time of COVID we felt very safe on the boat with our family and the CPT. He even had hand sanitizer ready if we wanted it. We will absolutely book with these folks again. They will accommodate the type of tour you want and are flexible unlike others. Super fun and super nice guy. We will be back!
