    This is our 2nd year doing this and we love it!!!! We originally had a reservation for Thursday but we got stuck in traffic and was not able to make it, we hurried and called and they moved it to Friday for us!!! Made our experience with them that much greater!! We saw a lot of dolphins and overall a great experience!! Will be doing it again next year!!

    Great experience

    My friend, sister and I had a wonderful experience! The Captain explained in a gentle voice all that we were seeing and some of the history of the area. The dolphin sittings were fantastic. It was as if the dolphins were performing for us! We also saw big jellyfish. This trip was well worth our time and money! Thank you!!

    Dolphins Galore

    It took awhile, but eventually we saw more dolphins than we expected. The ship's crew was friendly and entertaining. The only complaint I'd have is that the boat rocked a lot, but that probably had more to do with the strong tide than the boat. Overall, it was a wonderful, memorable experience.
