    Not great

    History information was very limited. Didn't stay where Dolphins were swimming. Crew was hard to find for questions.

    Dolphin Cruise was Great!

    Great experience! We saw about 16 dolphins throughout the trip. The captain and crew were very alert and made sure we had a good view of them. Would definitely do it again!
