Great Experience!
Jun 2021 • Family
So glad we decided to do this. Connor, our guide, was fantastic. Craigcats are easy to handle, saw dolphins up and close and I’m not sure if I had more fun or if the kids did. I don’t always leave reviews, but this one was worthy of it. Thanks, Connor!

Fun couple boat time
Got tickets for the 1.5 hour tour and we had such a great time! We saw dolphins all throughout the tour, even spent some extra time tracking down a dolphin pod. Tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable, very chill guy. I will definitely recommend this tour!

May 2021
FABULOUS!!!! My daughter and I had the best time. The CraigCats are so much fun, plus got to see many dolphins right beside the catamarans! Conner was a great guide and even took and e-mailed pictures from the tour. Went on the 2 1/2 hour tour and Loved Every Minute and definitely worth the money!!!

This is what fun is all about! We had such a good time I bought tickets for my son an his girlfriend when they come to visit. While we only saw dolphins, it wasn’t at all disappointing. Cut loose and make some great memories...you won’t regret it.

Great Experience
May 2021
We had an awesome time! Jason guided our group through so many waterways, spotting dolphins along the way and searching for manatees. Our island stop did not disappoint with amazing views and shelling. Jason shared his knowledge of the waterways, islands and wildlife and really made this excursion so fun. We would definitely do this again on our next visit. I highly recommend the 2 1/2 hour tour for maximum adventure and fun!
