First timers out on the bay and we enjoyed every minute! Capt Bruce and deck mate Joyce were super and very knowledgeable.. The two hour trip was just enough to see all that lemon bay offers. Highly recommend to all ages!

This tour is very laid back. The Captain shares interesting facts about the area and wildlife. There is plenty of time to enjoy Lemon Bay and you are not rushed if/when you see dolphins. We saw many! The relaxed atmosphere is enjoyable. Snacks and beverages...More

I love taking visitors on this boat tour to see the birds & dolphins in Lemon Bay. I did a late afternoon tour once and will never make that mistake again; I think dolphins must take naps then. Bring a bottle of water, binoculars to...More

Sorry you were disappointed with what you saw! Unfortunately, we can not make the wildlife appear on cue and some days are better than others! We do provide water and binoculars to our visitors that forget their own for a very reasonable price. Thank you...More

What a lovely way to spend an afternoon. We were lucky enough to see a couple of dolphins and a manatee. Also a mention for the very friendly and informative Capt. 👍🏼

We took the sunset cruise as a family of four and had a great time. You could leave all your stresses at home as you watch the sunset and the clouds changing colour. The captain was very informative and friendly. Would highly recommend.

I don't remember exactly how much. I think it was around $30/per and it was a sunset tour. It was about 3 hours or so. Very nice you can bring your own drinks on board ( no glass) captain was great! Worth the trip
