This was a very nice two hour tour. Our group had to use two boats- but Capt. Kim and Destiny kept the boats together the entire time. We went past Bird Island, saw sea life (crabs, sea horses, shrimp, small fish, star fish/etc.) as they were brought onto the boat in a net- the best was stopping and picking up... More

Captain Kim's small boat only holds about eight people which just adds to the enjoyment and intimacy of the trip. We booked via the internet and simply turned up at the appointed time and place - southern tip of Anna Marie Island - with no pre-payment and a healthy level of two way trust. Kim herself is extremely knowledgeable about... More

We love going to see Captain Kim. We have gone twice now and learn something new every time. Thanks to her, our five year old son now understands what symbiosis is. Captain Kim always mixes fun with learning and makes our experience special for everyone! Thanks Captain Kim! This will definitely be a family tradition.

We spent 2 hours with Captain Kim and learned about the area, the wildlife and got to see and hold seahorses, urchins, sand dollars, starfish, and crabs. She took us to a sandbar where we could look for shells and explore. Well worth the price and Captain Kim will customize your tour based on your needs.

We took a 2 hour boat ride with Captain Kim. My kids (ages 11, 14, and 17) wanted a longer ride. We stopped at a sandbar and found shells and sand dollars. We were able to wade in the water and feel for the sand dollars with our feet. It was incredible. We saw dolphins and so many birds. Captain... More
