    Captain JC was great. He customized the trip so everyone had fun. We all caught fish and enjoyed the shelling. Will use again for sure.

    Great ride to Saint Vincent and little Saint George! Took a similar excursion last year around the same time (early June) and Captain Luis was able to find dolphin both times! They come so close to the boat! We got great pictures! Our family age range is 9-72 and we all loved it! Thanks Captain Luis and Captain Wes for a great half day on the water!

    My brother in law and I had scheduled a family trip so the kids could find nice sea shells and to see the beautiful sun set on the ocean. We called a week prior to the trip and added a little fishing package for the adults. We arrived on the island and while sitting on the beach Captain Krista called on Tuesday and informed us that bad weather was coming in and wanted to see if we could reschedule for that night. We changed Captains to Captain Skip. Let me tell you this man had a huge hand in making some beautiful memories for my family. The enthusiasm and knowledge of each individual fish caught. He took the time and explained about each fish to the kids. Captain Skip then seen that we were about to get caught between 2 storms. Making safety his first priority he explained we would call it a night and head back in. The water was pretty rough on the way back but with his years of experience on the water he went through it with with out any problems. Thank you all for looking out to reschedule the boat trip and think of our family's safety first and foremost. Semper Fidelis Captain Skip we will see ya next year.

    The house will beautiful and situated so close to the ocean. It is across the street but the walk is short and the view is perfect as there is no house in front of it.
    The pictures are accurate: the house is beautifully decorated and well equipped with lots of small appliances, handy cleaning supplies, and every kitchen tool imaginable.
    It also had beach towels, chairs and umbrellas. Lifesaver for packing space in our crowded car!
    We particularly enjoyed the porches, on one level a screened in porch with a table and chairs and a non-screened porch with adirondack chairs. On the middle level, off of the bedrooms, a porch swing, a hammock and several loungers. Beautiful views from both.
    Thanks so much for a great family vacation!

    Sam is great! We did a SUP lesson with her and she was so patient. We very much enjoyed our time on the bay. Also did beach yoga and it was fantastic for every skill level. Highly recommend.

    We had an incredible time on the sunset tour. We were blown away by all the wildlife we encountered and just how peaceful the bay was. Highlights included an alligator swimming by near the marina, countless dolphins playing in the wake behind the boat, a shark swimming on the surface of the bay and a beautiful sunset over the glass-like bay. We will definitely go out on the waters with Southern Salinity again our next time in the area!

    These guys have it all! We rented a golf cart, bikes and even a beach tent. It was so nice to have these extras for our beach vacation. The folks there are incredibly nice and helpful! Great service and great rentals.

    Our family of four had a great morning on the water with Captain Jack. Having grown up in the area, he is very knowledgeable about where to find the fish. After casting his net for the bait fish we were quickly on our way to catching our own fish. If the fish were not biting in one area, we didn't stay long and Captain Jack moved to another area. Captain Jack was very helpful with our various skill levels. Next time we go fishing in the area, I will call Captain Jack again. And, if you have a chance, ask Captain Jack if he has any of his honey for sale. We bought a jar and it is delicious!

    We went out with Captain Ross and we had the most amazing time! My husband and I are visiting Saint George Island. We have traveled a lot across the world and I must Captain Ross was one of the best experiences we have ever had. He was so concerned about us having a great time and made sure that everything was taken into consideration to ensure that we had a good time. To top it off we were exhausted after the trip and he drove us home thank you so much Captain Ross movie back and be sure to ask for you

    We are still basking in the afterglow of our vacation on St George Island. I can’t say enough about our boating excursion. It was the highlight of our trip & Captain Dan was amazing. We just went for dolphin watching, shelling & the sunset, but we did a bit of fishing, as well. The catch of the day turned out to be my son’s hat! 😂 Can’t wait to go again 🌞🌴🐬😎 Do yourself a fav & contact Fortunas Family Charters! #MakeMoreMemories

    I was forewarned that to vacation on St. George Island we needed to arrange for bikes. We had the first few days of our vacation packed already so I scheduled with them Wednesday to Friday. We also had one of our little guys not sure so we got a bike with trailing wheels. They delivered bikes days early and then when we were able to get our little guy riding, they switched out the bike with no question. I would definitely use them again.

    We went out with Clint last week. He mentioned several times on our way out to the gulf through the bay that he didn’t want to be out on the water and that he wanted to go eat a hot breakfast at a restaurant. We get to the end of the bay and he tells us that conditions were too rough and he turned around and cancelled our trip. (Sunny day with 2-3 foot swell. Definitely not a bad day to fish) he said he would refund our money. I guess he later felt bad about canceling our trip and got another captain to take us out the day after but did not give an address nor contact information for the other captain. I tried to call/Text Clint to get the other captains information. Clint did not reply until the next morning when we should’ve already been on the other captains boat. I just text him this morning about the refund and he said he is not giving us a refund. Truly an awful experience and $1400 essentially stolen from me.
