Our family had an amazing experience with Captain Steven. We saw so many dolphins and he took us to an amazing beach where my family had a wonderful time snorkeling. This was the highlight of our trip.

Capt. Steve took us on a morning tour with shelling. He fitted right in with our family group. The boat ride itself was super fun. Saws tons of dolphins. I would highly recommend eco charters.

Our family had an amazing trip with Captain Steve. He is knowledgeable, calm, and genuinely cares about his passengers' interests. I was especially impressed that he is concerned about preserving nature and its inhabitants, and would not engage in practices such as feeding the dolphins...More

We had a great time with Steve and Stephanie. They each shared information about the area and the inhabitants. We wanted R&R and a great sea shell hunting experience with Manatees and Dolphins...they exceeded our expectations! We will return and recommend them to friends.
