Highlight of the Vacation!

We took this tour for my son's birthday and were so happy to have found a fun boat tour! He is not the type to sit and watch the sights....having the ability to drive our own boat made it an adventure! We saw lots of dolphins and also the wild horses on Cumberland Island. It was the highlight activity of our vacation. Brandon was a great tour leader and shared great stories about the area and commerce on the shoreline. If you are booking any kind of activity, for a vacation in this area, the CraigCat Boat Tour should be at the to of your list.

Excellent value…we were on the water for a long time & travelled far! We saw lots of dolphins & wild horses. Zack was great! The CraigCats are easy to drive & lots of fun! However, do be prepared to be colder than you expect.

The CraigCat Boat tour was an amazing experience! My Husband & I enjoyed our anniversary out on the water with the best tour guide ever Chris McComas :) We saw wild horses, dolphins & various birds. He took us to some special historical locations & we had a blast. This is a must do on Amelia Island. The fun, excitement & pictures are memories that will last a lifetime. I highly recommend it :)

Had a fantastic time with Chris McComas. Riding the CraigCat was exciting all by itself but then getting to see Cumberland Island and the wild horses topped it off. We also were able to see around 20 dolphins up close. Great experience and I highly recommend. Thank you!

Great water tour if Cumberland Island. We saw dolphins, horses and even a shark! The boats were a blast to operate. Our guide, Chris McComas, was awesome. We told him it was our anniversary and he had a surprise bouquet of flowers brought to us at the end of our trip. Highly recommended!

Fun boat ride. Great tour guide, thanks Chris! Great for families, couples or friends. Would recommend going on a hot day as you will get splashed a bit but so fun.

Great to see the northwest end of Amelie Island. Great guide. The CraigCat tour was the highlight of our vacation/business trip to Amelia Island. The 251 Kitchen at the Marina is a great place for "spirits" after the tour.

Amazing tour!! We had so much fun with Chris as our guide! THE best activity we did during our visit on Fernandina beach. Chris taught us how to maneuver our boats over smooth and choppy waters, the boats were fast which made it fun and a bit scary at times. He took us to different spots, stopped and gave us the history of each place. Chris is a local so he was able to add his personal experiences to the tour. He took us to Cumberland island where we came ashore, went swimming, saw wild horses which live on the island and walked along the island shore taking in all of its beauty. He told us he has camped there many times and has seen horses giving birth right on the shore. Chris also recorded our trip by taking pictures of all of us throughout the tour. He later posted them on a website where we were able to download all the pictures and video we wanted. We highly recommend this trip if you are up this way. It was a blast!! P.S. My husband and Chris are both VW enthusiasts and Chris was a wealth of knowledge on local VW activities!
