Zach was very knowledgable about the area, we got to see an osprey nest, and he worked hard to get us close to see the dolphins. He took us to the bay side of Shell Island and it was a short hike to the gulf side. We had the beach to ourselves and at sunset got some amazing pictures. Truly memorable! And so much fun!

We had the best time. Captain Zack was so great! He made us feel right at home on his boat. Very family friendly. The dolphins weren’t out like we had expected. BUT we got to see a huge stingray! The snorkeling was more for the ocean life and not much so much shells. We found some hermit crabs, sea snails and tons of fish. We loved it so much. On the way back in to dock we ended up seeing some dolphins close to the dock. The water was amazingly clear. Captain Zack knew what he was doing for sure. We felt very safe with his boating skills! Thanks again for an amazing experience!

Thank you for the kind words! We try to make it family friendly and sometimes when the dolphins are shy I can round up a stingray or sea turtle instead :) I hope to see you guys again!

Fun, private boat ride

We had a fantastic experience! The boat was under maintenance so we were moved to a pontoon with Captain Ron and Captain Mike who let us know there was a rare tide/wind (I think) event happening and offered to take us a different day instead. We said we were ok with a little rocking and wanted to get to shell island more than we cared about dolphins. They were amazing about getting us out there on a great ride and we even saw some dolphins anyway! We spent about an hour on the gorgeous island and Ron was great to talk to, had very interesting stories to share when we asked him about being a diver. Would love to go out with these guys again!

Was worth every penny. If you are looking for a relaxing ride, this was it. Captain Zach was very knowledgeable about the area. He made us laugh and feel very welcome on the boat, he appreciated everyone. Almost feels like he would do it for free, just because he loves his job which was everything you want in a tour guide. I would give 10 stars if I could.
