    I really enjoyed the dolphin cruise With the Olin marler crew. The crew was very personable and knowledgeable about the area and the animals. They did a great job of locating the dolphins and engaging with the for a great experience..... The boat was clean, as well as the restrooms. There were snacks and drinks available at a reasonable price and plenty of places to sit in and outside of the cabin. It was definitely an amazing experience.

    Dolphin Cruise

    Our excursion was very enjoyable. The crew was both informative and approachable. We saw lots of dolphins and learned a lot about the local area. Well worth what we paid (which wasn’t bad)
