    Very Nice Boat. Very nice Staff. Made the cruise very enjoyable. We had to cancel due to weather but I got rescheduled for the very next day. Well worth the money. Lots of Dolphins seen.

    Lovely boat ride

    We only saw two dolphins, but even so the captain was very knowledgable about the area and the boat ride had wonderful scenery. Well worth the money even if the dolphins aren’t too active.

    Outstanding service and event!

    First time using Tripshock, booked Dolphin tour in the Gulf Coast for entire family. Couldn't have been easier, and couldn't be more happy with the ease of use! Will definitely use Tripshock again. Crew was very accommodating, allowed the older kids to steer the boat while wearing Captain's hats! Saw countless dolphins and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

    Fun Excursion

    The crew on the boat were very helpful and friendly. Our kids thought it was fun to be allowed to ‘steer’ the boat and have pictures taken at the wheel. It was disappointing to only see a few fins from a distance but that was not the fault of the crew, they tried hard to see the dolphin.

    Great Dolphin Cruise

    After two cancelled cruise we finally enjoyed our third attempt. Had a great Capt named Bill and he let Bill drive the boat. We saw lots of dolphins close to boat. It was a beautiful sunny day and fun time.
