Great sunset cruise!

We saw dolphins and the horses on Cumberland Island. Friendly crew. BYOB cruise was lively and fun but not rowdy or obnoxious. We had a great time.

Great sunset cruise!

We cruised with Captains AJ and Kyle. AJ kept up a running, humorous commentary on the sights. We saw dolphins and got super close to grazing horses on Cumberland Island. Thanks for a nice evening!

Fantastic experience

We took the Cumberland Island tour with Captain Nate. The ride was awesome and his stories and knowledge were tremendous. We had a wonderful time and so did our 9 and 10 year old.
