We did the tandem parasailing with Bruno and Julian and they were wonderful! We had two teenage boys who absolutely loved it! They were very knowledgeable and extremely personable! Best ever!

Captain Nick and his crew go out of their way to make sure you get as many fish as possible. While most tours I have taken with Capt. Nick have limited out. he and his crew will try to ensure you get as many Snappers and other species as possible. He will pull anchor numerous times to find the right... More

Enjoyed our cruise today on with Breakaway Cruises! Mike was a funny, enjoyable tour guide. We saw some dolphin and the eco tour brought us up close to stingray, shrimp, fish, crab and other marine life. Lasted two hours and the crew had fun the whole time. Best dolphin cruise on SPI!

Very enjoyable 4 hours on the water with interesting comments from the captain and a delicious shrimp boil lunch. We began by watching a Coast Guard boat towing a confiscated boat while the captain talked about the possibilities of why it was confiscated. We saw oil rigs being built and some being dismantled. This is an area where decommissioned navy... More

This was a great dolphin adventure and eco cruise. We got to see and hold pufferfish and starfish. Our net also pulled in blue crabs. We saw a lot of dolphins, the crew was fun, and everyone enjoyed our trip.

We traveled on a very chilly and windy day. The tour starts off with them dragging a net to catch sea life to show you, so you go very slow for about 15 minutes or so. They pulled up the net the first time and it did not open. Instead of going on about the dolphin tour, they dropped the... More
