Had a great time! Took a three hour trip to see dolphins, look for shells on Little St George Island, and watch the sunset. Captain Wes was very nice. Would definitely go again!

We had the best time! Our kids had never been on a boat and loved every minute of it. Joanna was great and very responsive with emails. We were supposed to go earlier in the week but weren't able to and bad weather kept us at bay but they got us in and it was wonderful.

Capt. Wes was so patient with our very inquisitive child and answered all his questions. We weren't able to collect a lot of shells because of how conditions were but Joanna was wonderfully sweet and gave a bunch from her own collection to my sons and they love them. It's the personal touches that help make these experiences great!

We hope to do another tour next year when we go back to SGI!

What an incredible experience! Our family of six, including two younger children, thoroughly enjoyed the fishing adventure. Joanna was very responsive on email, and helped put together the right package for our family. Looming weather the week of the trip forced some last minute modifications, but Joanna made the process easy for us... truly exceptional!

Captain Wes was great... a patient instructor for our kids, and someone with unparalleled knowledge of the local area and and local waters. He set us up for success by finding all the right fishing spots! This is a definite repeat for our family. Make this a part of your family vacation to St. George Island. You will NOT regret it.

Thank you Andrew, for your kind words. We enjoyed working with you. We were lucky Tropical Storm Cindy blew out and we were able to get you and your family out on the water for a memorable experience. Captain Wes enjoyed your fun family and that everyone had a good time! We are looking forward to your next trip to the Island!

Took a great Father's Day dads trip with Captain Wes. Just a half day near shore. Getting to the boat was super easy, driving right up to the dock. And it was a comfortable ride out, with plenty of comfortable seating. We saw plenty of dolphins and caught a number of different fish species including Snapper, Mahi Mahi, and King Mackerel. We even saw a Tiger Shark.

Highlight of our vacation. Capitan Wes has the patience of Jobe. He works well with younger children as well as older adults. We had a blast fishing. Saw some great wildlife. Dolphins and some large sharks. The fishing was great. Caught more than we could of imagined. Capitan Wes cleaned the fish. He made everything very easy and safe. Great trip!
