    Amazing cruise

    The crew and captain did an amazing job. We saw some dolphin and shark. The boat ride was very energetic and entertaining. I would recommend using this company and booking site. We got our money's worth and would definitely do it again.

    I manners no dolphins

    I find it weird to ask to pay the staff after I just spend close to $100 bucks for three people to watch water. That’s right we didn’t see dolphins and than we were advised that the staff isn’t paid and we are supposed to tip. I also didn’t quiet understand why I MUST go to the front of the boat to board when I m explicit do not want my picture taken. This ‘procedure’ took forever, the captain advised board customer to find a spot to sit if we don’t want a picture taken but the staff literally pushed me toward the front of the boat though I did not want a picture taken. Overall wouldn’t go on this cruise again
