We are so happy to have selected this trip as a family trip. We saw several dolphins included a dolphin family. What a great day! Be early as parking is awful!!! Be prepared to pay for parking. You definitely need 1.5hr before the trip to check for parking and line up for check in into the boat. Great music and fun staff!

Overcapacity

The boat was overpacked and we would have to stand up for the duration of the tour which was 1 hour and 45 minutes. We had to get off the boat due to that and after being told that it would be 2 boats and only one so it made it overpacked.

I wish the boat had open spaces with shade.

It was not the fault of the venue, but it was definitely the wrong time of year for the Dolphin Cruise. We had to wait on line for an hour in the heat. I didn’t like the boat. It was not comfortable to sit and there were not enough open windows downstairs. It was too hot and sunny to sit upstairs. A canopy for shade would be great.

It was a nice trip. We all enjoyed it. Even though we got to see some dolphins it was just a few around the first 30 minutes, after that it was just a boat ride. Nice commentary about the residents of the beach front properties.
