Awesome Day. Captain Dalton and Mate Jackson were fun, friendly and knowledgeable. We were able to see a lot of dolphins and the view was beautiful. Would recommend this trip to locals as well as tourists. We will be returning.

Captain Dalton and First Mate JC gave an amazing tour. Captain Dalton was friendly, informative, and funny. The dolphins did not disappoint. Definitely worthwhile!

Captain Dalton got the dolphins jumping. We saw numerous dolphins on the tour. Well worth the money. The tour even made my teenager smile. Highly recommended. Much better than I even thought it would be.

Ordinarily, it is $24.95 for adults and $14.95 for kids. You can look up a Groupon and get it for much less. It's probably best to just call them to find details and check out the Groupon.
