Not everyday do we get to experience the presence of such a fantasy creature. But when they do show, everyone lights up including myself! Never gets old seeing dolphins in the Intracoastal Waterway. Thanks again!

Rented a standup paddle board. Mike was great to deal with. Fair price, fine board. First time on an SUP for everyone in my family. They all liked it even better than kayaking. Great way to travel around the sound.
