  • TERRIFIC experience. The staff is very knowledgeable about the bay and were a delight to learn from. We rented a pontoon for the afternoon rigged for fishing. We saw manatees,Merganser ducks and an Osprey nest. Its very evident that they care about the Bay and how guests treat it. You can tell by the health of the Bay that it's well taken care of. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
  • We took the breakfast cruise, it was a great time. The captain and the narrator were extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The cruise was the right amount of time, very family friendly and we got lucky and even saw a few manatees and a dolphin from a distance.
