I booked the dolphin cruise for my family of 6. It was AMAZING!! We saw so many dolphins and even a quarterback turtle. Captain Mark was knowledgeable and extremely passionate about his job and the ocean wildlife. We can't wait to take this cruise again.

Can you recommend 2 or 3 hotels/motels near your business? Possible group of 4 adults and 4 children to take your Dolphin Watch tour(August 5th or August 6th) Coming that way from Michigan to do this with grandchildren and daughter?
