Beautiful Sunset Cruise

We had a beautiful boat ride with Captain Sam. She was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and the history of the area. Highly recommended!

We were recommended the eco tour with Sam as it was too windy to go snorkeling and decided to pay the $250 for a 2 hour trip. We left the boat at the end feeling very disappointed given the money we'd spent. We saw nothing in the water beyond small fish. This of course was our bad luck and we... More

Thank you for your input. I am sorry you were not pleased with the tour. I try to make the best of the conditions for each day and each trip since our tours are private personalized charters. Sometimes the wildlife and weather does not cooperate. Unfortunately this seems to have been the case for your charter experience. Being able to... More

We were looking for something to do on the water. The wind had been up for several days and the snorkeling trips had been cancelled. Found this one in the trip advisor pages and gave her a call. 2 hrs later we were on the water and eco-touring through the keys and mangroves. Very nice 2 hr private tour today.... More

We choose to do this trip on the spur of the moment. It was our last day in the keys and we were not flying out until the evening. Found Capt Sam by accident really. Had no expectations and usually I research everything before I do it. Sam is very friendly and knowledgable about everything related to the keys ecology.... More

My wife, her brother and his wife went out for a Three Hour Tour, and we returned. We did the mangroves, lighthouse etc. it was a beautiful morning today with light wind and calm seas. We saw porpoise jumping, many birds and the bonus - a manatee. Sam is a marine biologist and very personable and knowledgeable. We had a... More

We have been snorkeling, on the eco tour and sunset cruise with Captain Samantha. She always has lots to share and show her passengers. We would recommend her to all of our friends and family.

Friendly, accommodating, interesting guide. We're not fans of talking tours. But Captain Samantha was thoughtful and worth listening too. Also, she didn't feel the need to stuff as many words as possible into her tour. What a relief.

My husband and I chartered with Captain Samantha for a 3 hour snorkel trip. She got a good feel for what we were looking for and was helpful in making sure we had a good time. After snorkeling a couple reefs we had time for a short ride to the back country which is a great too. She is knowledgeable... More

We stumbled across this boat trip however Sam was amazing and adaptable to what our mixed group wanted to do, snorkeling and sight seeing, we even managed to see Dolphin. Very knowledgeable about the wildlife and sea life. Lovely day.
