Was windy and cool the day i went but was still an enjoyable experience .There are black mats on the seats which keep you from sliding and sitting on wet metal.... More

Our first time at Cocoa Beach and we thought a tour of the islands to see manatees and dolphins would be fun and relaxing. Although it was a warm afternoon we did see some dolphins and quick glimpses of manatees. The manatees are hard to spot. We did see several dolphins. Our guide did talked alot the trees which was...

As we lost my mother last year, we decided to have a gathering in an area in Florida where we had lived as children in her honour, to share memories, prayers and comments. We thought the perfect environment could be a boat on the open water. We were a group of 22 and the captain and his mate followed our... More

Went out at 8:30 p.m. and the captain took us all the way to the cocoa beach country club. He pointed out the glow created by the microrganisms and the beautiful homes and condos along the way. As we got further away from the lights, the stars in the skies became so pronounced. With an app on my smart phone,... More

This was a fantastic tour - we saw all sorts of birds but best of all we saw lots of manatees and a few dolphins. The guide - Bob - was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. A great afternoon.

We had taken this tour before and it was wonderful; this time boat ride was relaxing - guide not so good. All she talked about was trees - missed a lot of the birds we saw and didn't really seem knowledgeable about the birds.
