Both guides were very knowledgeable about the history of the area and even though I have been a local Florida resident for over 30 years and two of our party had been born and raised here, they still told us things we never knew. Granted, we did not see any manatee (then who really knows where wild life is going to be unless you have them corralled some where), but we did see many egrets, herons and several large osprey (look like eagles) and at the last part of our tour we came upon a large pod of dolphin feeding. There was even a mama with a baby at her side and we ended up right in the middle of their pod - all around us - front, back and sides. It was a perfect sunny Florida day, beautiful breeze and great companions. Thank you Dolphin Safar and Scenic Tour for a sweet ride!
The Captain and Historian were quite knowlegable. We will definitely book another tour when the family visits Florida again.
Wonderful day out on the water! We saw so many dolphins and the crew was so fun! Thanks for a great experience!
We luckily had a lovely day to go out on the 11:00 a.m. boat tour. The Captain and Cody, first mate, were very knowlegeable and upbeat, and did everything they could to enhance the tour. We had a beautiful view of St. Augustine and the Fort from the wster and saw lots of dolphins near the boat. Our timing and day coincided with the firing of the canon from the Fort and that was nice. And we saw some bunch of Spoonbills on a sand bar along the way. Boat is small, but everyone could sit with a roof overhead so that helped with the sun. Nice trip and we all enjoyed the tour. Got our tickets through Groupon which was helpful.
The 2 guys giving the tour seemed to be very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor.Overall it very enjoyable.
The boat tour was fabulous the captain and his first mate were very knowledgeable regarding the history of the area! The captain really knows how to drive that boat, it was a very smooth ride. My 87 year old grand-mother had a great time and we even got to see several dolphins! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a personalized ride.
We had a great time! Everyone was helpful and informative....The only issue we had was when we tried to telephone to ask a question we could not understand the phone message...The message sounded like the person talking was underwater...not clear at all....But everything else was great!!
Very please and enjoyable morning spent on the water.
Nice cruise. Saw some dolphin and a sea turtle. Very attentive crew. My visiting relatives loved it.
Captain Tony was very knowledgeable about dolphins as well as the Florida historical landmarks we saw. He and his wife Jennifer run the business and they are both extremely personable. The trip was amazing and we did get to see several dolphins, I highly recommend going. One tip though, be on time! We had to leave people behind because they were only a few minutes late. I don't blame them for doing this, as it would have cut into our boat ride time and they may have never came at all. Great experience highly recommend!
