Great Experience! TripAdvisor

This is the 2nd time we went on the sand bar cruise with Marathon Mermaid, each time with a different captain (first Mike and most recently Booker). Both were great! Great experiences and we will continue to go out with the Marathon Mermaid on future trips.

Marathon Mermaids was a great experience for our family. We went for the Sandbar excursion which was around a 4 hours. A 40 min boat ride to the sand bar with great views along the way. The water was so clear and great for snorkeling and swimming. Captain Doug and first mate Jimmy were so nice and helpful. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Marathon.
