I have only one complaint you guys should let people know that even if they arrive 1/2 hour ahead of time that may not be enough time due to parking. Unfortunate they will leave if the captain isn't forgiving if you're not at the dock.Our captain did wait on us and I am glad he did

The Captain of the Vagabond had a soothing voice that made you want to listen, and he sounded like he was Dana Carvey imitating George W Bush...Yes that is a complement. His knowledge of dolphins and ecosystem both land and sea was great information. Ish and Taylor were very accommodating by taking our empty bottles away before the wind blew them overboard and Ish told us of his work history on the ship. Yes, we will do this again. All the Best, Otto & Lynn Meilick
