It was a wonderful experience. Our captain was great and informative. We got to follow some dolphins. We stopped at Morris Island and able to walk around and collect shells. Definitely recommend it!

We had captain Steve as our tour guide and he was amazing! Shared fun facts, answered our questions and was attentive the entire trip. My 74 year old mom and 78 year old uncle also enjoyed it very much!

Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable but we didn't go very far at all in the kayaks. He stopped us at least twice to talk for a good 10 minutes about random nature facts. We were hoping to see more animals but barely saw any....More

We enjoyed the sunset boat cruise with Capt. Richard! We had a great time and enjoyed learning a few things from our very knowledgeable Captain! We will definitely do this again when we return to the area, but only through Flipper Finders!

We had a great time on the boat. A super smart skipper who told us lots of interesting stuff about the nature and the surroundings. We saw dolphins and turtles and our kids just loved it.

Certainly a bathing suit, but bring lots of sunscreen and a hat! We did not have a chance to get out of the kayak on our trip, but depending on the direction you go you may have the opportunity.

It's our off season but if we are around and the weather is nice I'm sure we could arrange something. What type of tour are you looking to do? How many people? Best way to communicate if via email. flipperfinders gmail
