    We went out on the 3:30pm cruise Thanksgiving weekend and it was fantastic! Saw lots of dolphins and the sunset was gorgeous. The captain and crew were friendly and accommodating, which created an all around great atmosphere for the family. In the past, we took a cruise in this area and it was a party atmosphere with a constant focus on buying more drinks. The Hannah Maria provided a relaxing and educational experience that I recommend to anyone.

    Very nice tour. It was a bumpy ride on ocean but worth seeing dolphins.
