We had an amazing time on the dolphin watch. We saw lots of dolphins and my kids loved it. Captain Don was great. He was knowledgeable and was very good with the kids. We look forward to doing this again.

Our ride exceeded our expectations. Captain Don got us right into the middle of an incredible number of playful dolphins, he was so knowledgeable, yet made it fun and an adventure.

We had a fantastic time on the tour. Don is extremely knowledgeable about the ecosystem and the ACE basin which in addition to the dolphins made the tour very enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour, you will not be disappointed.

It depends on the trip. There are beach shuttles for $25, guided tours for $50. Well worth it.
