Dolphin and manatees

We had a great tour with captain Justin, saw both dolphins and a manatee. He even got the dolphins to race after the boat, only few feet away

My friends and I went on the Dolphin Cruise conducted by Captain Jay Hollaway on a beautiful Fall Day. Captain Jay made this experience delightful. He had much to share to help with entertaining us on the cruise. We saw many dolphins and enjoyed the boat ride as well. The price was so reasonable. I truly recommend taking this cruise... More

They played around the boat and then surfed in the wake. It was wonderful! We enjoyed learning some local history and hearing fun stories from the captain. We... More

Thank you Captain Jay Holloway for a fantastic dolphin cruise! Captain Jay made our trip both FUN and educational. We saw both manatee and several Dolphins. Captain Jay has a GREAT since of humor and if we weren't looking and learning about birds, manatee, or Dolphins, the captain was telling stories about the locals and the environment, all while interjecting...

Jay is a welcoming and friendly tour guide. We got a vide range og wild life experiences during the tour. Especially the sighting of dolphins will last in our memories for a long time. Jay was able to make the dolphins surf on the wake of the boat.

What a fantastic boat tour. Our captain Jay and his first mate Liz were terrific. They took great care to make sure we all saw dolphins, manatees and bird life in the area. They were so knowledgeable and the atmosphere was very casual. They encouraged everyone to get up and walk around to see all the sights. We learned a... More

A friend and I went on a dolphin tour with Captain Justin. It was so fun! I learned so much about the island that I did not know before. We also saw lots of dolphins. He made it fun, and made us both laugh. Well worth the money. Ask to go with Justin. He will not throw you overboard.
