Great ride with Captain Will! He was very informative and the scenery was beautiful. Cabbage Key was a great spot to visit. Loved seeing the dolphins chasing our wake on the way back too. I would highly recommend!

The lunch tour to Cabbage Key Captain Will was truly memorable. He’s very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw many types of birds and Will told us interesting things about them (wish I could remember the name of the bat bird). The greatest part was the dolphins. Watching them play in the wake was thrilling. We didn’t want it to end! Definitely recommend taking a boat ride with Captain Will! When I go back to Cabbage Key, I plan on going around the trails and climbing the water tower instead of getting lunch. Lunch was delicious, but very expensive, and took the entire time we were on the island. We didn’t get to do any exploring

We had a grand adventure with Will to Cabbage Key. We encountered dolphins along the way and stopped to view the rookery and saw Roseate Spoonbills and Frigatebirds (among others) carrying nesting material and feeding. Once at Cabbage Key we made our way to the bar (bypassing the patio and more formal seating areas). We were able to receive our food and liquid refreshments more quickly this way and get on to exploring the island. The tower, the trails and the gift shop were all enjoyed before returning to the boat. We would definitely recommend this experience for future travelers.
