Captain Sarah and guide Dawn were so friendly and personable, had lots of knowledge of the area and wildlife, and made the cruise so enjoyable!! We saw lots of dolphins cresting and even a couple jumping! I'd have no hesitation to recommend this to others and even go back myself!

Seeing the dolphins & enjoying the boat ride were great. The tour guide was funny and engaging. My 8 year old son was grumpy that the boat wasn’t cooler or faster 🤷🏼‍♀️. I did feel like 90 minutes was a little short.

Nice experience. Definitely saw dolphins! It was overcast that day & started raining. The team brought out a nice cozy blanket for our little girls & wiped seats down for us after the rain hit them. When dolphins started appearing they were awesome at making sure my kids saw them by leading them to the best spots on the boat to view them. They were very sweet to the kids, which goes a long way. They were fun to interact with and kept things interesting. They also played music. We were happy we went for sure even with the not so great weather.

It was fun. Where earplugs if you have sound sensitivity. Wear layers if you go during the winter. Great stories, great info. So much fun. Safe...and during the off season, there is room to spread out.

The narrator was pleasant and the driver was kind. They try to have people enjoy the ride. The dolphins do not jump out if the water high but you do get to see their fins. It's not their fault . So if you want to enjoy a beautiful sunny day out in the ocean, this is great.
