  • I can not say enough great things about this Captain and his tours. Each time we have been to the island took this tour and loved it. One year took the morning tour great this year took the sunset tour Awesome. I recommend any age if u come to the island take his tour you will not be disappointed.
  • This was the highlight of our trip. Captain Barry was fun and informative, and great with the kids, involving them in hands-on marine activities. We explored a sandbar full of fiddler crabs, saw a laughing gull's nest, harvested and ate fresh oysters from an oyster reef and pulled up a crab trap. He only takes 6 people per cruise, including the kids, so everyone gets personal attention. $40 for adults, $35 for kids under 12, payable by cash or check after the cruise. Money well-spent.
  • Wanted to go out and do something different with the family, this was perfect we did the sunset ride with our kids it was AMAZING. We plan to make it a every year thing! We have a special needs child and Captin Barry helped us by showing us she can do things without our help! He truly believes in the kids and does it for them!
  • Awesome! My boys absolutely loved it and were having so much fun they didn't even realize they were learning. Captain Barry is great with kids, too. I highly recommend this tour!
  • This was the perfect tour for anyone wanting to get away from the nonsense and learn something about the local enviroment and the people who work there every day. Barry had our boys chasing fiddler crabs, eating oysters straight out of the water, and pulling in crab traps. He knew every bird that flew by and every business we passed. We loved it!
