Matthew was great. The owner not so much.
Brian_B
, Aug 2022
Matthew went out of his way to dodge rain and find some dolphins. In the end we didn’t get to see the sunset due to heavy rain but the main reason I gave this a mediocre review was because of our experience when we first arrived. A man told us to wait at a specific spot when we arrived and didn’t identify who he was. I asked if this was the right place for the sunset cruise and he said yes and to stay there. Then I asked about the gravel parking which the directions (both texted and emailed) told us to park. He said “that is old information you need to park at the Cambria where they charge $15” I said “it’s old information?” And he said “yes I told you it is old information!” He was clearly in a bad mood and didn’t seem willing to explain why his business told us to park there in the first place. I told him I asked because there were signs saying we would be towed and despite him telling us it was old information we were just texted and emailed those exact directions the day before. He didn’t apologize that it was his business that told us to park there and that it was his fault for even sending us there in the first place. He basically eluded that if we didn’t want to take his advice we would be towed. This isn’t how I was expecting to be greeted in what is supposed to be a nice evening experience. We were very out off by his attitude and about to just leave when Matthew (our boat captain) came up, introduced ourselves, and seemed to be very friendly. In the end I moved my car, got charged $15 but got no apology from this older man whom I later learned is THE OWNER. My advice is to please update the parking directions which your business still sends to their customers, and work on your people skills welcoming guests (even my 9 year old son thought that man was acting very rude) — or leave the introductions to your younger boat captains who seem to be much better at welcoming guests. Again Matthew’s salvaged what was quickly becoming an unpleasant evening. I’ve read other reviews and wonder if something happened to the owner right before we showed up because he clearly did not behave the way many other guests described him. Maybe we just got unlucky that day but unless he changes his parking directions and his customer service, I can’t recommend this service.

So glad we booked this sunset tour. We had an excellent time with Captain Keegan! We had a private tour with several dolphin sightings. The whole experience was terrific and I’d highly recommend!! So much fun!

Mike went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. He is very personable and made sure we got great pictures. He even toured the boat to make sure we were able to see dolphins up close. Highly recommend!

Nice sunset cruise out of Madeira Beach (not as crazy as Clearwater). Boats hold 6-8 people and are comfortable. We had the owner as our captain as their other boat was full, and they wanted to be accommodating to our last min booking. Had a great time cruising around the area and seeing a wonderful sunset and lots of dolphins. Would highly recommend.

Releaxing and fun sunset cruise. Captain was like hanging out w/a friend. Much better than cramming onto one of those 100 person boats. Dolphins almost close enough to touch. Loved it!

Although we didn’t get to see the sunset due to the front coming in, we saw lots and lots of dolphins. We saw babies and pods! It was very personable and our captain was able to get us close to dolphins. Definitely worth it!

My photos don’t even do this trip justice, which is why I didn’t post any. But this was a great experience. We got to see some cute dolphins playing right up next to the boat! The sunset was beautiful, the water was so peaceful! The captains were great, just an overall great experience!
