    Great trip with a lot of dolphins

    Warm trip but the wind helped a lot. Parking is a whole other history. Come at least one hour before or you will have trouble finding a spot.

    Very courteous

    We scheduled our tour for 4:30 but couldn't make it in time although we arrived at the parking lot at 3:57. The problem was that there was no available parking at the marina so we had to drive around to find somewhere to park. We called to tell them that we might not be able to make it. She stayed on the phone with me to try to help me find a parking space in the area. It was packed and we just weren't going to make it on time so she rescheduled our time to the 7:00 sunset cruise. We were still able to see lots of Dolphins, especially in the Harbor!!
