    Wonderful experience

    We had a wonderful time on our dolphin cruise. The captain was very knowledgeable and also quite entertaining. He knew all the right tricks as to where the dolphins hung around, and because of that, we got to see lots of them!!

    Enjoyed ride

    I found this excursion on an accessibility site. I have MS and use a walker. It was difficult getting on the boat. They needed a step stool. It would have made all the difference in my experience. Once on the boat it was extremely nice. Beautiful sunset. No dolphins, but that wasn't their fault. Pleasant weather. Very friendly and helpful crew. Would do again if they had a step stool-very small and inexpensive fix.
