    Booked a dolphin cruise -it was suppose to be onThursday. Good thing Bo (the boat owner) & I chatted a few times (quite by accident). Turns out you booked us on a cruise for Friday (I was leaving Friday morning). Good thing for Bo - he let us take the cruise in Thursday - like we wanted to begin with.

    Sunny lady is the best

    My family really enjoyed this outing. By booking on trip shocked we saved a lot of time. After seeing some of the other boats on the water we knew we had chosen the right one. It was clean and roomy. Available snacks and great music was a plus. The best part for my son was being able to sit in the captains seat and take a picture. I highly recommend this trip.

    Five members of my family went on the cruise on a Saturday afternoon. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Friendly staff, clean boat, and we saw lots of Dolphins. Highly recommend to anyone interested in a pleasant, interesting experience.

    Dolphin Cruise

    The crew was friendly. I have seen more dolphins on other boat tours. Booking through tripschock had a few things I didn't like was if you book your cruise the day before you can not cancel without losing your money. I made that mistake. As far as dolphin sightings you see more when they use dual boats.
