Great Experience!
Captain Matt was very friendly and knowledgeable. 5 and 3 year old kids enjoyed going fast. We rode around for a bit and Matt talked about various landmarks. We eventually found a pod of Dolphins and watched them for awhile. Nothing really felt rushed and all around a great experience.

Private Cruise
Matt was exceptional. Gave us a good experience at his boat plus good information. I recommend him anytime you in gulf contact him and he will give a lifetime experience. You will not regret it.

Dolphins and sightseeing
We had a great time with Captain Matt! One of the highlights of the trip for us all! We were able to see a mama and baby dolphin and cruise around looking at some beautiful boats and waterfront homes.

Highlight of our vacation!
We booked a 2-hour private dolphin tour with Matt and had an absolute blast! We were able to see many dolphins out in the Gulf. Matt was very friendly, flexible and easy-going. It was definitely the highlight of our trip! Would highly recommend

Best dolphin trip!
We have been on multiple dolphin trips, but this trip was the best by far. Having a private boat made the experience so much better. We weren’t fighting around people to see the dolphins. He took us close and my family enjoyed the private experience together. This tour was perfect for my 8 year old son and 6 year old nephew. They never had to wait or miss dolphins due to being behind tall people. For some of my family this was their first experience. We will be booking Matt again on our next visit! If you have a group of 6 people pay a little more for the private tour. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Matt will customize your tour to give you the best experience possible.

Captain Matt
Captain Matt was great! Getting the pod of dolphins to follow and jump in the wake behind the boat is a memory my family and I won’t forget. He is also very knowledgeable about the area

Matt was awesome!
We took a a cruise on 7/17/23! It was great! We saw plenty of dolphins and other wildlife. He also trapped crabs to show our kids. Would 100% take a cruise with him again if in the area!

Great time!
Matt was a great captain! He did a great job finding dolphins for us and educated us on them. He did a great job showing us around at some amazing boats and houses in the area. The preteen and teenager both enjoyed this trip as well!

Private boat tour with Back Bay Charters
Matt was AWESOME!! We took a 2-hour boat tour with him. We saw the most dolphins together that I’ve ever seen!! Probably 40-50 all together playing. My 3 & 5 year old grandsons loved it. It was also perfect being on a boat with just us. Would definitely recommend booking with Back Bay Charters and Matt!!

Great Dolphin Cruise
Captain Matt was knowledgable and fun! We didn’t see as many dolphins as we had hoped but we did see some and they came right to the boat. It was a fun day!

Great Cruise and Captain!!
Matt was a fantastic captain!! We were able to see tons of dolphins, beautiful shoorscape and an amazing sunset. Most of all, me and the Mrs. We’re able to recreate a moment 30+ years in the making. I would highly recommended Matt and his private sunset cruise. You will not be disappointed!! Kenny and Susie

Don't book elsewhere
Matt found 4 different dolphin pods for us to view, 14-16 different dolphins over a full 2 hour time period. Great videos and pictures! So glad we did a private charter for our group of six.
