    So fun and so relaxing

    We had such a great time on the Hannah Marie!! The captain was great as well as Amanda, the shipmate. They were so kind and they found some dolphins for us to watch!! It was the first time we had ever been on a double decker boat so of course we sat on the top deck and we could see everything! Not to mention the sunset was absolutely beautiful

    Not much dolphin viewing.

    Only saw the fin of a couple of dolphins. Supposedly one on the opposite side from where we were sitting but my seasick tendencies kept me from getting up and walking around on the boat in the wavy water so I didn’t see it. Never found another one. Sunset was pretty though.
