Marco Island is in my blood. I was born here. I know every inch, nook, and cranny of this beautiful barrier island and the network of inland waterways that run through it and around it. Join us on the most magnificent Marco Island dolphin, shelling, and eco tours and let us share our memories as you, your family, and friends create new ones.  ~ Captain Stacy Mullendore

Captain Dan showed us a great time out on the water. He gave us so much information about the waterways and went out of his way to get the dolphins to dance behind the boat. It was great to be guided by a native. Book the 6 person private trip - you won't regret it.

My wife, daughter and I had a great time fishing today. My daughter caught her first Sea Trout. A beautiful day on the water. I would highly recommend Capt. Stacy. I’ve been with him more than once and he has always put us on Fish. I will be booking another trip soon. Bruce

Captain Dan was fantastic. While Bimini Twist did not promise manatees and dolphins Captain Dan found plenty of both along with putting us on an excellent shelling location. Excellent experience with a knowledgeable and friendly captain...Good guy... highly recommended.

My wife and I first did a fishing charter with captain Stacy in September of 2014. In 2015 I took my daughter Jorja, my Dad and my Father-in-law. In 2016 my parents bought us a trip for Christmas. In 2017 I shared his contact information with a friend and he took both of his future son-in-law’s. Every trip we caught fish. We asked Jorja what she wanted to do for her sweet 16 birthday this year and she said she wanted to go on a charter with captain Stacy. I contacted him to see if he was available and once again he did not disappoint. We caught the biggest and most Snook we have ever caught. Stacy is VERY knowledgeable of the area. He is very personable and was very excited to hear that Jorja wanted to spend her 16th birthday with him.

Just an amazing few hours! Capt Dan was great and has so much local knowledge. We took our 7 year old and it blew her mind! We saw dolphins, manatees and the shelling was very cool. Highly recommended if you are looking for a few hours away from the beach/ pool.

The entire trip was amazing, saw tons of dolphins, great views and amazing shelling! On top of that they catered to our small children and were very accommodating to our group needs. I would HIGHLY recommend!

The experience was great from booking to the actual tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the trip a enjoyable experience. We had been looking for a safe covid experience for our weekend in Marco Island, and this was it. A private boat tour and shelling on what felt like our own private island.
