    Great crew

    My family and I had a great time. The captain and crew were very nice. We did the sunset cruise, as storms were coming in so they decided to take us back to dock. We were ok with that and appreciated there concern for our safety.

    I went with my parents. The boat was packed to the max but still comfortable. When there were dolphins spotted on either side, we would head over to see. No matter where you were, we spotted dolphins. It was a fun ride, recommend to go as early as possible.

    Awesome trip

    We saw so many dolphins that we stopped taking pictures. The captain and crew were great. My kids loved the trip - would highly recommend it.
