    Awesome cruise

    We had an outstanding time on the dolphin tour. The crew was OUTSTANDING! We did see some dolphins, but we did go late in the day, and we were told the dolphins were plentiful earlier in the day, [I guess they were tired by the time we got out there]. It was still an amazing experience, and I definitely recommend the dolphin cruise to anyone in the area for a great family outing.

    Not so many Dolphins

    Was great breeze , way too many kids and some adults up and down the spiral staircase , standing directly in front of us ! Need more rules that might apply to those that are disrespectful of others .

    Worth the money!

    We were given free beer when we arrived, the drinks on the boat were great, we got to see a lot of dolphins, and the captain was hilarious. Everyone in our group had a great time. Would recommend this to everyone.
