The dolphin/snorkel tour was awesome! Smaller boat made more personable. Stopping on the sandbar to swim was extra nice! Definitely book again in the future!

I’ve taken his tour, 3 times now. He never disappoints. We have seen 3 or 4 pods of dolphin every time. He makes the trip so much fun and very educational. I recommend him to all my friends.

I personally wouldn’t recommend it. It’s kind of a small boat so somewhat rough with the waves. Not smooth like on a larger boat.
