    Great Staff and Ride

    Our Dolphin Tour was a wonderful experience. The staff was very upbeat and friendly. They let the kids put on the captains hat and "drive the boat". We didn't see as many Dolphins as I would have liked to, but I understand that is something they really cannot control. From reading other reviews, many other travelers saw lots of dolphins. We did see a few and one got fairly close to us. Overall a good trip and a nice tour with a fun crew.

    kids had a blast!

    We all enjoyed our dolphin cruise. We saw many dolphins and the girls on the boat were very nice and helped our kids see the dolphins. They even got to "drive the boat" which was so fun for them. Overall this was a fun experience and very affordable.

    My mother's 92nd birthday

    We took my mother out on a sunset dolphin sighting cruise for her 92nd birthday. The staff was very accommodating. Before the trip I was contacted by TripShock people to ask if I would need anything special for my mother. We were able to bring whatever we wanted to drink or eat on the trip. On the boat, everyone was very nice and my mother received a complimentary birthday smoothie!I was a very nice experience.

    Dolphin trip

    My daughter-in-law, grandson and I enjoyed going on the boat and seeing the dolphins. I don't know if the guys who were out shrimping were paid by you all to be there but we loved seeing the dolphin go up and take the fish out of the one guys hand and him petting the dolphin on the head. The trip was well worth the $15 we each paid to go.

    Dolphins, Dolphins, Dolphins

    Many sightings of dolphins on our cruise. Even had them jump out of the water several times. Crew did a great job making sure everyone got a chance to see a dolphin. Boat was not too full and easy to move around to see the dolphins.
