    A Wonderful time!

    We had a wonderful time on the dolphin cruise. As they stated, they took off right at 6:30pm (which was great!). The staff was very friendly and the dolphins did not disappoint either. :)) I would recommend this to anyone.

    Less sharks more dolphins

    We saw more sharks than dolphins Umm maybe find a better way to get to the areas where dolphins really are. Was in San Diego and saw more dolphins than whales! SMH
