    My family of 5 ordered our tickets for the Southern Rose Dolphin cruise, a few hours before the 5:30 departure. We really enjoyed the cruise along with having tickets to guarntee us a spot ahead of time.

    Amazing Dolphin Cruise

    We had a fabulous time on the Dolphin Cruise. It was our first time going on one and we had 2 kids with us (age 12 and 9). They had a blast and only got slightly seasick at the end. They still said it was totally worth it. Great crew, perfect weather and conditions. We will certainly be going again next year.
