We booked a half day with Tim and had a great time. We got to see so many different forms of marine life and beautiful beaches. Many of the places were accessable by boat only and Tim knew the best places to go. He also shared some family and area history from his years growing up in the area. This tour was also pet friendly which allowed the whole family to enjoy. We really enjoyed the fact that it was at your own pace and customized to your own liking. We highly recommend checking out Bali Hai for memories and fun you won't soon forget! We will definitely book again when we come back.

Captain Tim provided a fun-filled day for our entire family! The adults loved all his plush accommodations and expert Captain skills! He shared his knowledge of the bay and different islands with us. Viewing the bay and ocean from Bali Hi was a phonenmal experience!

Captain Tim took us to pristine beaches and shallow waters full of abundant marine life. The kids were able to enjoy this activity while creating a family memorable experience!

Our entire family feel in love with Captain Tim! We will definitely book again very soon.

We booked a sunset cruise with Captain Tim and it was the highlight of our vacation! The views were breathtaking, and Captain Tim was so knowledgeable and great with our children (not to mention his fantastic deckhand). Would highly recommend!!

We booked a half day Bay Fishing trip with Captain Tim. Our original plan was a morning, but he needed to reschedule with us and we ended up on an afternoon trip. The wind was up and the water was very choppy, so the first place he chose for fishing was just too rough. Took us to a different part of the bay and we were able to fish there. We caught a lot of small sharks, some Ladyfish (which are great fun to bring in), a couple of Pompano, and a Red Grouper - all of those were catch and release. We also brought in 3 very nice Flounder, which were keepers. Captain Tim worked hard to keep our lines in the water - the sharks were very good at breaking the lines and taking everything with them. Tim gave us an extra half hour on the water since our trip out to the first spot had taken up some of our time. The only down side, in my opinion, is that for Tim to clean and fillet our fish, he had to take them with him and then we had to go meet him the next evening to pick up the fish. I am used to charters that have the ability to clean the fish as soon as you come into the dock and you take the fish with you. However, Tim did a very nice job filleting the Flounder and they were DELICIOUS eating! Tim was affable and knowledgeable. I would book a trip with him again.

Captain Tim and his first mate were terrific hosts. The sunset was the most beautiful sunset I have witnessed from land or sea. The family and I want to thank you so much for the great pics you took of us. When the sun slipped below the horizon the water calmed and we headed back to the landing with memories that will be with us forever.
Thank you for an awesome time.....
