We are glad to see that our sunset tour was a smashing success with an amazing sunset to end the tour! The dolphins are almost always that active during the day and never disappoint! We hope to see you again!

My family came down for spring break in April 2017. We got a great deal on a dolphin cruise and figured the kids would love it. And they sure did! We would definitely consider doing this again!

We had a totally awesome sunset cruise. Justine (the captain) and Malory (his helper) were such fun and very informative. Everyone on the cruise had a ball. We saw plenty of dolphin and they played with our boat. Highly recommend this trip

Highly recommended for everyone, especially families with children, if you are in the area. The tour is absolutely worth it. Captain Justin was very knowledgeable and fun, and all the kids got to be "captain" for a few minutes each, which they adored.More

Google that name and go to their website and follow the trail for booking a cruise. That will lead you to the price and calendar for what days the cruises are available. They vary.

Does go year round. Snacks and water good idea. Sunscreen also. It was a great trip. The dolphin cruise is also a good deal.
