Best Birthday everrrrrrr!
So relaxing! Amazing crew on board, knowledgeable and friendly. Extremely affordable.
Definitely a getaway to breathe nothing but pure beauty! Alone or with friends this was the best experience! Will be booking regularly!

5 stars for Captain Anderson’s, hands down! We had an incredible Captain and crew on our Eco/Dolphin tour to Shell Island. They made sure we were able to watch and see dolphins for about 30-45 minutes and helped us follow them to stay on top of where they were. And it was 3.5 hours at a very affordable price!

It's awesome, they need to take us to the fish. Enjoyed the boat ride all we caught was grunt fish. They just didn't stay long in one spot. It was my first deep sea fishing trip. I did catch 1 fish and my husband caught two.

Only 4 guys in our family had a blast. The guy that works the back of the boat ,Scott was full of knowledge and laid back kind of guy from what I was told. The men in our family are ready for another trip out. Good price, fun times and awesome memories. Thank you

Really fun time caught a stringer full of fish. Also love the fact that the boat is big enough to escape the sun and go into the air conditioned cabin. This boat has it all even a short order cook who served all types of beverages.

The 3 hour boat trip was relaxing and fun. The boat was clean. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable. They didn't have the suvinere drink cup that I had a coupon for, so I was given a free drink with refills. Overall an enjoyable trip well worth the money.

There were 7 of us (3) children ages 9.7 & 5. We all loved going to Shell Island searching for shell, and watching dolphins. Capt. John let each child steer the boat for a few minutes which they enjoyed. Friendly helpful staff! Answered all our questions about what we were seeing and about other things to do in the area! Highly recommend! Very reasonably priced for the adventure! We went on a Sunday morning trip (6/14/2020).

We went on the 10 hour deep sea fishing trip for our 2 year wedding anniversary. Everyone was amazing; especially our guide, William. He made sure we knew what we were doing at all times and was very efficient at taking care of everyone on his side of the boat. I noticed the care and pride in their work, especially on our way back in to the Marina, when the crew began cleaning the boat. It's nice to see them take such pride in what they do.

Best in deep sea fishing! Great Crew to work with. If you wish to go deep sea fishing, this is the Captain you need with at least five or so ships in his command.

Had a great experience with my wife and 2 kids. We took the express and enjoyed the trip to shell island and had the pleasure of riding with Captain Nick and First Mate Mikaela. Both were nice and trip was fun for whole family.

Great Dolphin Cruise, very friendly and kid friendly. My daughter celebrated her 14th Birthday aboard the Cruise and the Captain had everyone sing her Happy Birthday
