Enjoyable afternoon spent slowly cruising down the intercostal. We got to see a lot of dolphins as well as the sights along the way. Crew was very helpful and answered all questions with knowledge. Will definitely do again, perhaps one of the sunset cruises.

A really wonderful trip. The captian and first mate were very knowledgeable. We saw a baby gator and some beautiful homes. Afterwards we went to Grills for lunch with a discount coupon given to us by the boat personnel.

This is a great cruise for everyone. It lasts about 2 hrs and is filled with bird and dolphin sightings, fun and information. The crew members are actually family and thoroughly enjoy what they do! This is a must when in the Melbourne area.
