What people are saying

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Captain Santiago and Bay2Bay Tours. My husband and I, along with our son and his fiancée, spent a lovely day on an excursion to Egmont Key State Park. Being a licensed captain, our safety was of the utmost importance to Captain Santiago, and we knew we were in great hands from the instant he picked us up. The boat was immaculate, comfortable, and very well equipped. He had everything we needed for a day on the island: snorkeling gear, seashell bags, beach umbrella, frisbee, and more. He waited patiently as we toured the island, which was remarkable in itself! It was way more than we ever expected. We were thrilled with the amount of wildlife we encountered and even got to see a few manatees at play. We purchased the charcuterie package and were pleasantly surprised by the delicious and beautiful charcuterie board that his wife (Ruth) so lovingly prepared…Captain Satiago set up a very nice picnic for us on the boat and made sure we had everything we needed. We were treated like family, and we greatly appreciated how accommodating he was. We highly recommend choosing Bay2Bay Tours. We are already looking forward to another charter with him next year.
