    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.

    Great trip.

    We took the evening dolphin tour and we loved it. We got to see several dolphins as promised and the staff was very friendly. Wonderful tour. We would definitely recommend this tour.

    Sunset cruise

    The boat left on time. The staff was friendly. And we got to see several dolphins. The water was too dark to see anything through the glass bottom.

    We took the sunset dolphin cruise with a large family group. We saw lots of dolphins & had a nice ride through the intercostal waters.

    Dolphin cruise

    The cruise was nice. The speakers were hard to hear when the captain was speaking. A single staff member was very friendly and suggested additional things for us to do while in the area. We did see dolphins so that was nice.
