Connie is extremely friendly and knowledgeable of the surrounding keys. Takes you to see the lighthouse and explains the history of Cedar Key. This is a must do to see the sunset. BYOB and enjoy the ride. We will visit again.

This husband and wife team gave us a memorable experience covering the area of cedar key. They were intelligent and interesting. They knew their history and natural history of the area. It was a two hour tour and reasonably priced.
