When the captain told us to go to the back of the boat and get our cameras ready, we did. Then he gave the boat a little more power to get the dolphin to come and play in our wake. They did, a pod of 5 and some were jumping and some were rolling. Then he told us to cheer and applaud because they could see and hear us and would even put on a better show. We did and the dolphin did... IT WAS AWESOME!

We had Capt Mike and Valerie as our tour guides. Couldn't have been happier with them. Very knowledgeable and friendly. Knew where to go to find the wildlife. Saw several dolphins, birds, manatee, bald eagle and learned about the area. Well worth the price and a very enjoyable cruise.

This was a great little trip. 1.5 hours, and we learned so much from our park ranger. There are several tours throughout the day, but only a few have a ranger on board so make sure you take one of those. The captains were great as well, very patient and kind and wanting to make sure we saw everything there was to see. We saw dozens of dolphins playing in the water, and jumping through our wake. Some of us caught glimpses of manatees, which is not common. A great experience for all of us, ranging from age 6 to 75.

Mike and Valerie on The Shark gave us a great tour of the 10,000 islands area of the Everglades National Park. We saw lots of birds and dolphins jumped alongside the boat and played in the boat’s wake - we will never forget that amazing sight! The kids got to have a turn driving the boat, too.

Very nice boat tour with Captain Mike and 1st Mate Valerie. Good information about dolphins, manatees, and the environment. Very environmentally aware - was very careful not to disturb the manatees. Lots of dolphin sightings, several manatees, and a variety of birds.
