David is honestly the best captain you could ever get. He went above and beyond to make my bday celebration amazing. Not only did we get to see gorgeous views with dolphins but he docked us at the perfect swimming/picture taking spot to watch the sunset. Best experience ever and if you need a professional at taking pictures David is your man. My friends and I will definitely be booking with him again.
