Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a great afternoon on the water, and our guide was top notch! He was a patient instructor with those of us who have never driven a CraigCat, and safety was his priority. We were able to see the dolphins close up, and one even gave us quite a show by jumping out of the water! If you go, eat the fresh fish on the dock at the Crabby Lady after your tour.

Had such a great time. Tyler guided us through the islands and knew where the sandbars and oyster beds were. Very safe boats that maneuver well. No experience required and they explain it all. Dry bag and coolers with water provided. Saw dolphins right up close to our boats! Would definitely recommend!

We had an excellent time. The boats were fun to drive. The tour went through winding mangroves and open water. The seats on the boat were comfortable. We saw dolphins jumping in and out of the water, playing and having fun. We did the shorter tour and felt it was sufficient. Definitely go to Stan's for lobster and beer after!

What an amazingly fun day! Eric was a great captain - he skillfully navigated the mangrove lined waterways and ensured that all of us had a great time! We saw pods of dolphins, egrets, ospreys, pelicans and more wildlife in their natural habitat. We stopped on one of the islands and took in the awesomeness of our surroundings. It was a perfect day thanks to Eric - he truly loves what he does - his energy and passion were infectious! We highly recommend this outing - you will not be disappointed!
