    Booked the tour a few hours before it was to start. The weather changed and I tried contacting the company to get a refund sat on hold for over 10 minutes before someone finally came on the line and was told the captain had to make the call on going back out. I gave them our concerns with getting on an uncovered boat with children was not something we wanted to do. The office tried reaching the owners to see if they will give us a refund. They couldn't reach the owners. We didn't want to chance the kids getting sick so we did take the cruise and lost our money and it started back raining shortly after the 5pm cruise. So we would have been stuck in the rain on an open boat. NO THANKS!!

    Hi Jeanine, ...

    Hi Jeanine, We do experience these types of afternoon pop-up storms this time of year, so it's common to see storm clouds with some rain around the time you contacted us. When you book this excursion within 48 hrs from departure, it is a non-refundable booking unless the captain cancels the trip due to weather. There was some light rain about an hour before departure, but the cruise was able to depart at it's scheduled time and it ended up being a great sunset cruise. I'm sorry you decided not to go as our other passengers had a terrific time. I know you contacted us as well as the boat directly and both parties advised it would be non-refundable. However, we may be able to reschedule for a later date, so please contact TripShock management if you wish to explore this option. Thank you, TripShock! Guest Service Manager

    Love this company! We had previously taken the shell island trip with them and didn't realize this trip was also with them. This trip was so laid back and so romantic. We didn't get to go out into the Gulf due to wind but thankfully there were PLENTY of dolphins in the bay! Staff is great and friendly and really do their best to satisfy everyone on board. Highly recommend if you want a romantic sunset trip

    Wonderful Company to do Business With

    We received great communication & help from the company. The catamaran was clean, employees were friendly & the singer aboard was talented. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset & dolphin sightings. Depending on how far you are traveling to board, we would recommend allowing 3 times as long as Google tells you it will take. Traffic is extremely heavy from West to East. Your goal should be to be among the first to board for the best seats. We rated this a "4" due to the number of people on board & the fact that once most had a good seat, they didn't budge. Who can blame them.

    Mr Moon, Thanks for coming out with us on our sunset sail. We appreciate your review and sorry for the traffic delays. Summer time can get a little backed up on the Beach. Also, we cap our sunset sails at 65, but we can hold 78 passengers. No one ever wants to sit down below in the covered area on a nice night, so we do our best to try and accommodate seating up top for everyone. We plan to add more seats up top later this year. Please come back and see us again. Thank you, Donnie and Tracey Coker

    Peaceful, easy feelin'

    Loved, loved, loved this cruise. Peacefully sailing on the calm waves. Perfect ending to a perfect day! Saw lots of dolphins and even though it was cloudy still had a beautiful sunset. Captain and crew were excellent, very friendly and personable. Other guests were great and very cordial toward each other. Most definitely will book this cruise on our next visit.
