    We went on the Olin Marler dolphin cruise.

    We took the 5:00 cruise with our daughter, son-in-law, and two young (3 and 7) grandchildren. We all had a wonderful time. We saw lots of dolphins and a few sharks. The crew was so good with the children, letting them sit in the captain’s seat, steer the boat, and blow the horn. I will say that if you have a tendency toward seasickness, take some medication before the cruise; but if you like a wild ride, this one’ s for you! We will be doing this again!

    Sunset dolphin cruise

    Excellent boat for a family activity to see the dolphins. Plenty of seating for young and old. Captain spends extra time looking at dolphins and tries to get as close as possible.

    Excellent excursion!

    Our boat trip was fantastic. Friendly and energetic crew - Roy was the captain. We saw a slew of much so that our spottings of just dorsal fins on the way back didn't even cause us to stand up and act interested :) we'd seen a whole pod surfing right off the boat in our wake less than 20 minutes in. After that, it was difficult to impress us. Saw sharks and even a sea turtle as well. Great boat, great people, great trip. Thanks!!
