    Good cruise but

    We saw a lot of dolphins and even a couple of sharks. The 3 host had a lot of knowledge about the gulf coast. My advice would be to get some motion sickness pills because a lot of people got sick on my cruise.

    Great group of people, well organized.

    I have used this company a couple times before and they are always really great. We ordered online the morning of the trip. We got there 25 minutes before the departure and they had our reservation just fine. We loaded up and took a seat. The captain was very nice and friendly. The crew was always helpful. One great thing is the snacks on the boat were all $1 so it was easy to get whatever we wanted. That was nice. My daughter got very scared of the waves but the crew was very accommodating and helped us get her settled down.
