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.

We heard about Lowtides from a local driver and thought we would give them a try after having no luck with other companies calling us back.

We booked the 11:30 to 1:30 and had such a great trip with Captain Matt, we booked the sunset tour the next night

Highly recommend Lowtide. The boat was beautiful and very clean and Captain Matt was fun and very knowledgeable.

We took a 2-hour sunset trip with Captain Justin, who is awesome! He took us up and down the intercoastal waterway, pointing out celebrity's homes, different kinds of birds, and schools of mullet rippling the surface of the water. Justin has a laid-back vibe, and great sense of humor, and a wealth of knowledge about the area. He was very kind to our 5 yo grandson and helped make the trip enjoyable for him. Watching the sunset on an island only accessible by boat was the highlight of the tour.

From the very beginning Captain Michael made our trip memorable! He took group pictures of us, offered complimentary drinks and snacks, and engaged with us while we celebrated our friends birthday. The boat had plenty of space and it was a smooth ride. I highly recommend this company and if you can request Captain Michael you won’t be disappointed.

13 of us had an awesome time celebrating our friends Birthday with a private tiki boat out of Venice! Captain Josh helped make it fun by allowing us to make music selections and he had a fun ski shot board where 4 of us raised the ski and took a shot at the same time! We went in the intracoastal waterway and out of the jetty into the gulf to see the beautiful sunset. On the way back into the jetty there were 2 people trying to swim across from the N Jetty to the S Jetty. They were struggling and he literally saved their lives by allowing them on the boat! Josh was a hero last night! Thanks again Captain Josh for a wonderful night & great memories!We will be back!

Went out with low tide tours to celebrate my and my sons birthday! A great time was had by all! Our Captains, Jason and Chaz were very nice guys! They were friendly and helpful. I am going to request them next time we go out!

Low tide tours is a awesome way to get in a fun boat ride (that is reasonably priced) while checking out the scenery with a nice cold drink in your hand.
We brought some of our own snacks and drinks, but they has plenty on board for everyone !!! They had a huge variety of beers, seltzer’s and wine. If your looking for a fun couple of hours, give Low Tide Tours a call or book them on line!!

My husband and I took a private sunset tour with Captain Josh and it was amazing! He played our favorite music, took us to a beautiful beach at sunset and made the total experience memorable! I would highly recommend and request Josh, he’s the best!

Had an amazing afternoon cruise with our captain Jesse who was personable and attentive. He did a great job navigating the weather on a very windy day. Saw lots of dolphins swimming and beautiful homes on the shore. Fun option for large or small group.

This was an unforgettable experience! Justin was our captain and unless he said anything, we would never had known it was his first trip. He was highly professional but so fun! He made us feel like we were getting a truly one of a kind and personalized experience. He was also an excellent bartender :). Thank you Low Tide and Justin for the highlight of our trip!!

This was our first time with Low Tide Tours, we had a group of 8, booked the 2hr sunset cruise and had a perfect night out. The booking was extremely easy and the team was extremely flexible when we had to make a few changes to our reservation date. We had Captain Josh in charge of our group and we had a blast. Departure location at New Pass was very convenient and we were able to pick up drinks, food and use the restroom at New Pass Grill before departure. Captain Josh took great care of our group, sharing many fun facts about the homes and the area as we cruised along the bay waiting for the sun to set. He brought us to a sandbar off of Lido Beach for us to hop off the boat and walk around and took our fun group photos. To top it off, the dolphins were out in full force to give everyone a show. The boat was a lot of fun having it to ourselves where we could freely move around, have our own music and bring our own food and drinks. Overall we had such a great experience from start to finish and will absolutely book again for another group outing.

Hi, I was on a Low Tide tour with Captain Josh out of AMI
What can I say, but one of the most fun boat rides ever! He’s fun, a great safe Captain and some kind of dolphin whisperer!!
He showed us famous people’s cribs, told stories about the area & played great music!
If you want a tour, ask for Captain Josh!
