Engaging and informative - we really enjoyed this experience. We had been curious as to exactly how shrimp were harvested, and we came away with a thorough understanding if not only that but a much better understanding of how the local ecosystem impacts businesses and livelihoods in the area. And some entertaining humor thrown in - well done!

The best place to take a trip with your kids. You don’t have to worry about parking because it’s free. They give you first priority to board the boat and choose where to seat if your book through here. David was amazing with the kids and a wonderful narrator. He let the kids touch the fish that was caught. The kids enjoyed feeding the birds with the small fish. My kids had so much fun they wanted to do it again. I also had a great time. The view was magnificent. I definitely plan to go back.

This was a great trip. I learned way more than I thought I’d ever know about shrimping. They were also very family and kid friendly they let everyone hold shrimp and kids got to touch or hold multiple fish they caught in the net. It was very educational and fun. The crew was amazing.

The Sail Fish and crew were amazing. We had a 6 year old and 3 year old and the crew made it special & entertaining for them to learn about the marine life.
