This will not disappoint, you will see dolphins. The boat ride is relaxing, it had a cool breeze, very relaxing. The crew was great. Had 3 teens with us which thought it was really nice to see the dolphins in the sound.

We weren't one of the lucky groups who found dolphins right away, but Captain John and Elena persisted and they delivered after over 90 minutes of searching. Don't be concerned about the photos. The boat is stable and plenty big enough. Seats were comfortable and...More
