    Awesome Dolphin Cruise

    We had an amazing time on the dolphin cruise, even when we were getting sprayed by the salt water. My one year old had a blast, and we saw more dolphins than I expected. The captain was amazing and even let the kids line up on the way back and take turns driving the boat. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. I'd definitely recommend this!!

    Dolphin day

    Had a wonderful time.. The captain made sure he found dolphins for us to see and spent plenty of time there for us to watch them play.. His first mate Miranda was very sweet and helpful .We would go again
