We chose the Glass Bottom cruise because it was close to where we were staying and they had enough room to get us on with short notice. The boat is a catamaran style and holds about 50 people. Very smooth ride. Captain and mate were both very friendly and helpful. Trip lasted a little under two hours which was perfect... More

Jeff(Deckhand) and Ace (Captian) did an excellent job making everyone feel comfortable and laugh. As advertised dolphin sitings were made before the boat trip was over. Had a great time!

I think Dolphins Down Under is a really nice company. The captain was super nice and friendly. There was food and drinks you could purchase. I thoroughly just enjoyed the ride. I guess the dolphins are so used to seeing boats all the time though. We saw fins and a little bit of their backs. I am glad that I... More

We really enjoyed seeing dolphins swimming in their natural habitat. The crew was very friendly and the captain made sure we got close to see dolphins swimming and coming out of the water. We sat on the front of the boat for a great view. Families with children on the boat especially enjoyed the tour. Adult beverages are for sale.... More

Crew was helpful and friendly. The bottom is not really glass. It is clear plastic and you don't see much but green water. Also they are in little fenced in areas so you would have to stand and look over the fence to even see the viewing area. We went on the lunch cruise. The hamburgers were delicious. We went... More

We took our family on a tour and had a blast. There were several dolphin sightings and the dolphins raced with the boat. Staff was very knowledgable about the dolphins and surrounding area. The glass bottom aspect isn't much however, the family had great time.

Me and my family quiet enjoyed this attraction! We were guaranteed to see dolphins and we did! The staff was very polite and enjoyable. They followed in the rules and made you aware of them in a good and nice way. The captain of the ship was nice and funny. I vote this is a must!

After calling and calling to schedule a trip, they finally called us back. However, it was rainy and a bit stormy on the day we were scheduled. We showed up 30 minutes in advance like we were supposed to, and they had to cancel due to the weather. No big deal! While we were waiting to see if they would... More

We had a great time on this cruise. The glass bottom wasn't anything too special and we had trouble finding dolphins but our tour guide was very diligent and made sure we saw some!

What a great experience! We have been twice so far and plan to go back again. When we went in May we were able to see countless dolphins, and up close! Now, when we went in August of last year, we only were able to see a couple. They do hold a guarantee that if you don't see at least... More
