“Our group had a great time on our tour with Matt and Jennifer. The ocean was a bit rough but they were accommodating and were still able to show us the beautiful reef but also took us to a calm spot to relax for a while. Great people and a beautiful day.” – Eliot J.

“Matt and Jennifer went above and beyond for my friends and I. They were accommodating, understanding, and fun to be around! We did a private tour to Looe Key, and I would highly recommend checking out the reef with these amazing guides.” – Abbey W.
