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.

    My family and I had a great time! Perfect trip for parents, children, and grandparents. Very knowledgeable about the ecosystem and presented in a fun way! Having used other guides in the past We will only use Island Explorers for our future trips. Being on the water is great, but doing it with the best guides and a comfortable ride. True professionalism!

    Erin was fun and informative and we enjoyed our time out on the water very much. It was too bad the dolphins stayed away but the experience of being down in Broad Creek instead of just looking at it was great!

    It was a beautiful day to be on the water and the guide was informative and fun. We saw many dolphins and three "strandings". Overall it was a wonderful learning experience and enjoyable trip.

    Our family LOVED the Vanishing Isle Tour! Captain Mark was awesome! We saw a ton of dolphins on our way out to the island. On the island we found alot of shells and saw many star fish and other little sea creatures. Captain Mark was super knowledgeable about the area. I would highly recommend Cross Island Cruises and Captain Mark to anyone!!

    Our annual anniversary trip was perfect. Captain Megan showed us baby Osprey, the tiniest baby dolphin, many dolphins and a sea turtle not to mention her vast knowledge of the waterways and islands.

    We had a photo shoot at the studio. My daughter and her son had fun as mermaids on the studio beach. We got lost and were late for our appointment. The staff was understanding and fit us in when we found our way there. It was worth the drive from Florida. The pictures turned out great and we can't wait to receive them.

    We have been coming to HHI for over 10 years. We booked our first trip with Captain Chris in 2012 and just finished our latest trip this year. We have done nature excursions, and fishing charters and they have always been great. He has always been engaging and goes out of his way to educated us on the wildlife and HHI. In some ways our boys have grown up with Captain Chris. I would highly recommend him to anyone. (And yes the little boy in the sombrero and the black sweatshirt and the same boy 10 years later)

    Absolutely the most incredible experience! We had Captain Rob and Randy take 3 adults and 2 teenagers for a sunset tour, from the minute we stepped aboard the gorgeous sailboat we were made to feel like VIP’s!! The insider knowledge that we received was like no other, we felt incredibly well taken care of and safe with the crew and the views were amazing! We will absolutely be back and feel super grateful that we found Cheers Sailing Charters!

    Captain Buddy was awesome! Highly recommend him. He is very knowledgeable, easy to get along with, and very laid back yet engaged to make sure you have a good time. He’s a great host and very enjoyable to fish with.

    We sailed with Jeanne and John and had a wonderful time. We saw dolphins on our sail and a most spectacular sunset. As this is our third sail with their team we strongly recommend sailing with them!
