Don’t worry. We’ll find them. We always do

It was getting late in the day. We had run low on hope, it wasn’t looking like we would complete our voyage with a single dolphin sighting. Captain Steve and Aly, heads on a swivel assured us that we would locate our quarry. Without a shred of doubt, Captain said, “Don’t worry. We’ll find them. We always do.” Then it happened. With a commanding voice, our Captain called out for all to hear, “Dolphins Port side!” We had put our faith in the right man. His masterful command of the vessel brought us within centimeters of the dolphins. Our trip saved! Truly a man of which legends are made. Thank you Captain. God speed

We had the BEST U.S. Navy Blue Angels and Frisky Mermaid Dolphin Tour

We had the BEST U.S. Navy Blue Angels and Frisky Mermaid Dolphin Tours & Boat Rentals tour this morning ! I swear my inner child came out . The boat crew couldn’t of been any better and so incredibly welcoming . Coming back from Ft Pickens yesterday I saw this boat in the water and commented on what a cool boat it was not knowing it was a tour boat . The Blue Angels are sooooo incredibly amazing , talented and really pull on your heart strings just watching them . I teared up . When America is in such a mess right now , you look up to the sky and listen to those jets fly and suddenly you’re frozen in time and all your soul wants to say is thank you and AMEN today seriously just touched a part of me that I’ve been missin so incredibly bad MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA
