    Best Tour

    We went on this tour on a Tuesday (November 5th), and it was amazing. I love coming to the area in offseason but many places were closed and over half of the other touring ships were out until March. ... read more

    Great experience

    The crew were all so friendly & helpful. They pointed out dolphins, took time to visit with people, & made sure we we’re having a good time. We saw a lot of dolphins, & the captain took time to stop & look & make sure everyone saw them & didn’t just rush through the tour. I came on a girls trip, & I’m bringing my family back. I’ll definitely bring them to ride this boat when we do!
