My family from out of town went on this tour on the lagoon. The captain was very knowledgeable about what we saw in the lagoon.

From the purchasing of the tickets to the end of the tour the "crew" was extremely unenthusiastic and uninformative! Not a word about the importance of the Lagoon to the Florida East Coast eco System. Not a word about the mangrove, which we were surrounded...More

I could almost copy-and-paste another reviewer's review about this "tour," because it really was pretty much a "pontoon boat ride, nothing more." That was my sentiment before I even read any other reviews, and what I was planning to write. It was such a disappointment....More

Decided at the last minute to take a dolphin cruise out of Fort Pierce while we were visiting. I checked Trip Advisor and found Indian River Lagoon tours, the reviews were spot on. All four of us really enjoyed ourselves and the Captain found several...More

The woman selling tickets made it sound like it was going to be a fun and informative ride- I have had more fun at a funeral. The "crew" was extremely unenthusiastic. We did spot some dolphins, a manatee and a few river otters. The captain...More

The trip was great, we saw dolphins and learned many things along the way about Florida. Despite what other people have reviewed, have to to be open to experience and gather the surroundings. We actually stayed out longer then expected which made it more fun....More

No not waste your money unless you have never seen a dolphin or Manatee. No welcome or thanks. I sure the tip box suffered. A nice day but a very dirty boat. It could be a great tour but the owners or management needs to...More

We were disappointed with this tour. I must say they did find dolphins for us to see, but they were very active and easy to spot. The team did not say much about the area we were in, a small amount on the environment. The...More

Well, from the very beginning when buying the tickets, the captain/owner of the business was EXTREMELY rude, he barely acknowledged us. He was not helpful at all when we asked questions on where the boat tour started. Then on the boat, at first it was...More

I should have read the negative reviews before we went on this boat tour. They said it all. The captain was not friendly at all, never introduced himself, welcomed the paying customers or gave a safety speech. Hardly said a thing. And when he did...More

Response from CaptainS7662 | Reviewed this property |
It was fairly inexpensive and definitely worth it. I see that others have answered that it was $23.00 for seniors and kids and that seems about right. Their website has all the pricing.
