    Awesome Dolphin Cruise

    We had an amazing time on the dolphin cruise, even when we were getting sprayed by the salt water. My one year old had a blast, and we saw more dolphins than I expected. The captain was amazing and even let the kids line up on the way back and take turns driving the boat. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. I'd definitely recommend this!!
