Perfect afternoon with dolphins

about 7 days ago
If you’re going to do a dolphin cruise, I highly recommend The Crab Runner. Not crowded, crew was extremely nice and not talking through a bull horn thank goodness. We hadn’t been on the boat for 5 minutes when we saw a dolphin and baby. It was amazing.

Friendly Staff

The staff was really friendly and took care of everyone, even entertaining us until we found some dolphins. Then they just sat back and let the guys put on a show for us.

Dolphin tour

Our trip was good we only saw one dolphin in the harbor under the bridge hugging the docks. But our captain and first mate were very knowledgeable and we will hopefully be back to try it again one of the days
