We went on a dolphin tour and it was fantastic!! We visited the end of April/early May and it was great! Not many people around and no need for reservations in advance. We called and booked a few hours before, there was only 8 of us for the tour. Caption was great and got the dolphins to play with us!!

Yesterday we booked the Fish Tale Marina Dolphin Tour for 4 people, & we were not disappointed! Before our trip I had called with questions a couple of times. Mallory helped me with all my questions, and, if she was unsure, she went & asked someone else. I received answers to everything before we went on the tour. Justin was... More

I've had two great outings leaving from Fish Tale Marina. Last week, my brother-in-law George and I took a back-country fishing charter with Capt. Neil Eisner and had a terrific time. We're both pretty inexperienced fishermen but didn't feel like it that day. Capt. Neil is a great teacher, as well as a great companion. And his casting ability is... More

Wife and I decided to take a Dolphin Watch from Fish-Tale Marina. There were 2 trips on the schedule for the day, 10 am or 1 pm. We opted for the earlier trip and enjoyed it. The Captain is also a naturalist and was able to locate many, many dolphins. There were ~ 20 tourist on our trip.

Horrible customer service. Rented a pontoon boat for a half day. Ten minutes on the boat, our radio stopped working. We called, and was basically told "it was the luck of the draw if you get a working radio". If that is the case, they should explain that so we knew if needed to bring our own radio or not.... More

Easy to find and park the car at no charge. The staff were very helpful from start to finish. Not being a regular 'boater' they were happy talking us through the operation of the pontoon we hired. The equipment was all in good working order. The tips on seeing wildlife proved excellent as we saw dolphins, rays and a manatee.... More

We took our 3 young kids ages 11,9 and 7 on the 10 am Dolphin tour with Captain Justin and they did a great job. The boat was clean, and they did a great job finding Dolphins and manatee.

Amazing time aboard the sunset cruise with Captain Jay! He was funny and made us feel very comfortable. We saw many dolphins and they played in our wake. Great time!

Captain Scott and First Mate Liz provided a great experience. We had 4 adults and 2 children (ages 10 and 8). Everyone loved it! We saw lots of wildlife (including dolphins) and learned several great facts.
