This was a great tour and it was inexpensive. We were able to see so many dolphins both from afar and up close, almost roughing the boat! The staff was friendly and the captain provided narration about the dolphins and the area.

It took about 20 minutes to find the dolphin. There were around 10 to start with, after a few minutes it turned into 20. The trip was very scenic and The captain and crew were great we would recommend this dolphin cruise.

Rudest captain in the whole world. If I could give this zero stars I absolutely would. The vicious and aggressive captain acted like he was the most important person in the world to all other boats. There were many, many, kind and excited young families...More

It was a great experience. At times there were no dolphins, but the scenery and the boat ride would have been worth it even if we never saw one dolphin. When you did see a dolphin it made it all worth it. We ended up...More

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
