Easy to schedule online. Dolphins were delivered as promised. Great tour of the area as well with lots of historical perspective offered. We took lots of great pictures and saw 15-20 dolphins in mostly pairs throughout the cruise.

We didn't do the sunset cruise sorry I can't give a good answer. But the boat is rather small probably 50'. There was about 20 people on our excursion and plenty of room to walk around, sit, be alone.
