2019 Review

Thank You Once Again

Our fifth year of operation, and second year of full time operation was another tremendous success. Our trips to Eagle Island and the 2,3, and 4 hour tours far exceeded our expectations. I can only thank all of you who joined us on the water.  

The New Boat For 2019

The new Robalo center console proved to be a magnificent upgrade. The longer length, wider beam, heavier weight, and hull design provided a smooth, comfortable, and safe ride even in the choppy seas we experienced this summer.  We received numerous compliments on the boat, including  from a few folks who "normally aren't too good on the water".

2020

Book your 2020 tour as soon as you can through the Book Now tab on our website. If you know when you're coming to the Islands, seriously consider booking early so you don't miss out on these wonderful tours. Remember there is no payment due until the end of your trip. Each year we fill up quicker and quicker. 


Eagle Island trips are planned to depart at 9:30 am and 1:00 pm daily, unless a 2,3,or 4 hour tour books first.  If you find you can't book a time on a specific date for Eagle Island online, call me to check on seat availability. Contact info is at the bottom of this section. 

With Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year closing in on us fast, my family and I wish you and yours  a Joyous Holiday Season. Again, thanks to all of you who cruised with us in 2019. I hope to see you again. To those of you who haven't, give us a try, I  know you'll have a good time.


                                               See you all on the water.
