Yesterday my wife and I along with ten other friends had the opportunity to take this wonderful tour. The tour was nothing short of excellent! The scenery and abundance of wildlife was spectacular. The operators were both professional and knowledgable. The insight into the area and what has been done ,and continues to be done to preserve this area was very informative. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to all. Best money spent thus far on our present vacation.

While in New Smyrna Beach we decided to take a fishing trip. We had a 92yr old in a wheelchair with us. Gave Captain Pete a call with a Saturday (actually the next day) date we wanted. He wasn't planning on going out but arranged his schedule to take us out. From the moment we arrived he went above and beyond anything we imagined. He loaded the wheelchair into the boat. We never touched a shrimp as he bated our poles. He helped the elderly gentleman cast, reel and unhook every fish. We caught a good number of fish, saw dolphin and had the best day ever. I cannot say enough good or give enough praise to Captain Pete for his hospitality. Very highly recommend for anyone wanting an awesome fishing experience.

Nice big pontoon boat. Very knowledgeable crew in regards to the wildlife we spotted. Wanted to see dolphins and saw plenty. I will visit again when the manatees are back next Spring. Hopefully get to share with some northern lattitudes friends and family when they visit.
