Wonderful boat ride with the wind going through your face on a warm day. Plenty of dolphins found to enjoy and the narration of the nearby homes and wildlife was very informative. A great time and then shopping and dining after right by the boat.

We had a great tour and saw lots of Dolphins that came very close to the boat. We also saw many native birds like egrets and birds of prey. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining.

Wonderful journey to see a variety of dolphins. Never a disappointment. We saw pods of 7 or more swimming together and some even jumped out of the water. Saw a Mama and Baby. There were constantly dolphins around us. And the crew was excellent.

The website suggests booking in advance, but we booked the morning of with no problems. We took our 4 yr old and she really liked it. I think she would've been scared of those pirates. LOL
