We decided to do the 1 hour Eco Tour and Captain Sam is very accommodating and is very knowledgeable about the Keys and the Eco System there, as she is a Marine Biologist and also grew up in the Keys! She navigates through the waters easily and knows the area, "like the back of her hand". My husband and I... More

Spent this evening with Capt. Sam on the sunset eco tour. What a great evening. Perfect weather, perfect sunset, perfect Captain. You can always tell when someone likes their job. Capt. Sam is very knowledgeable about the animals and plants. Saw dolphins, jellies, birds (including a bald eagle) and even a crocodile. No manitees, but hey it's a huge ocean... More

We were recommended the eco tour with Sam as it was too windy to go snorkeling and decided to pay the $250 for a 2 hour trip. We left the boat at the end feeling very disappointed given the money we'd spent. We saw nothing in the water beyond small fish. This of course was our bad luck and we... More

Thank you for your input. I am sorry you were not pleased with the tour. I try to make the best of the conditions for each day and each trip since our tours are private personalized charters. Sometimes the wildlife and weather does not cooperate. Unfortunately this seems to have been the case for your charter experience. Being able to... More

We were looking for something to do on the water. The wind had been up for several days and the snorkeling trips had been cancelled. Found this one in the trip advisor pages and gave her a call. 2 hrs later we were on the water and eco-touring through the keys and mangroves. Very nice 2 hr private tour today.... More

We choose to do this trip on the spur of the moment. It was our last day in the keys and we were not flying out until the evening. Found Capt Sam by accident really. Had no expectations and usually I research everything before I do it. Sam is very friendly and knowledgable about everything related to the keys ecology.... More

We have been snorkeling, on the eco tour and sunset cruise with Captain Samantha. She always has lots to share and show her passengers. We would recommend her to all of our friends and family.
