    Had fun and saw lots more than dolphins

    The boat was ok but the crew was great. It was hard trying to spot dolphins but luckily there is more than that to see. Definitely worth going.

    Dolphin cruise

    Was a great 2 hour trip, we didn’t see any dolphins but was still great. captain Jack was great and my 4 year old grandson loved his music and seeing him dance. We will go again on our next trip for sure.

    Family Fun

    We had an amazing time on our sunset cruise. Although we didn’t see many dolphins the captain tried to find them. The crew were very attentive and helped my mom on and off the boat.
