A beautiful and relaxing experience. My favorite parts: Watching many dolphins and then beach combing. So fun! Highly recommend this adventure.
No bathroom like we were told
Stacy_W, Mar 2022
Our captain Brady did a great job but we were told we would be on a newer boat with a bathroom. You put 50+ aged people on a boat the bathroom is a huge part of the sell.
Highly recommend!

It was so nice taking the ride around the bay at sunset. Our captain, Brady, didn’t rush the trip at all.
Arturo_G, Jul 2021
It was a very relaxing experience. Unfortunately I don't remember our guides name but his cool and chill demeanor made the ride that much more comfortable. Sunset was beautiful and got to see some dolphins as well.
Great Time!
Cathy_C, May 2021
Brady was awesome and showed us so much more than a sunset! Highly recommend- you won’t be disappointed!
Response from Host, May 2021

Loved the dolphins
Kathy_F, Apr 2021
I've been here all week and this was the best ...loved the dolphins. The driver was very nice and anwsered all the questions I had about the area.
Response from Host, May 2021

The best evening adventure
Sarah_D, Nov 2020
Brady was our guide and we had the best time! He was incredibly knowledgeable about the island and made a point to show us all the interesting things in the area. We also saw lots of dolphins and an incredible sunset. Worth every penny!
Response from Host, Nov 2020
Wow! Thanks for the review. Yes our captain/guide Brady has a lot of interesting information and is able to point out often missed things. We were happy to have you join us :)
Loved it.
Chris_B, Jul 2020
The Cruise was amazing! We saw most of the bay side and our guide gave a great history of the area. He let us connect to the Bluetooth speaker on the boat and play some romantic music as we were celebrating our anniversary.
Allowed for a shell-hunting excursion.
Ruiz_e, Jul 2020
You get a boat for six driven by a knowledgeable captain. No one besides your party is on the boat. You can bring your own food and beverages. The captain will have water for you. At our request, our captain took us to Boca Chica for some evening shell hunting for the kiddos. The shells were much larger than they are on the island. We had a great adventure.
