We learned a lot and the sunset was BEAUTIFUL! We were so happy to see some dolphins playing around our boat in the sunset! Only negative was it was very windy and cold on the boat. Wish I would have dressed warmer. But otherwise was a great experience! Thank you.

Jackie_F, Oct 2021
We have been to Jekyll many times, but this was our first time doing the tour. Should have done it sooner! The captain was very knowledgeable about the history of the island and surrounding areas, funny and skillful. The first mate was also very helpful and quietly funny. We saw pelicans, an alligator, and lots of dolphins at the very end. There was also a rare sighting of a sea turtle. We loved it and highly recommend it!
