It wasn't the warmest day (first week of march) but it didn't ruin the experience what so ever! I went to this dolphin tour with my boyfriend and two of our friends, we're in our twenties, and we had a blast. There were ages ranging from 6 months-60+ and we all had a great time. The two men who lead... More

This was a nice cruise and saw some dolphins. The crew on board and the woman that booked it over the phone were all very nice....They didn't see anything in the glass bottom areas. I was surprised that they were large tall boxes above the floor of the boat that you look down into. I thought the floor of the... More

We went on the 6:00 p.m. Tour and it was full. The boats can seat around 50 people. But it is still a lot of fun. It is true you really can't see anything through the glass bottom area, but we did see some dolphins. There were several that were babies and they were funny trying to surf of the... More

Very disappointed, water dirty, saw 2 dophins only for a 2hr tour. As for the glass bottom this just at the back of the boot small area.if you could have seen anything through the dirty water only a few people could have looked. If you just want a boot ride in the run area of the ocean this is for... More

Group of 6 people, including two girls, 15 and 11. Took the 10:00 cruise to beat the heat. Had a great time. Lasted about 1 1/2 hours, plenty of time since dolphins were close to mouth of lagoon. Plenty of nifty pictures to remember the cruise.

First thing I want to say is that the captain and crew were very nice and fun. They were very professional when there were technical difficulties on the boat. They got us safely docked and we all got a refund, although I tipped them very well. Now for the bad. It is not a glass bottom boat that you are... More

This was the biggest rip off I've ever seen. My mom and I paid $92 and wasted every penny. The boat was described to be a glass bottom catamaran, but it was just a regular boat. They also said that we would see all kinds of tropical fish and the featured animal was supposed to be dolphins. They took us... More

The captain and tour guide were great. They were very knowledgeable and halirous. They kept you laughing. We saw lots of dophins. We even got to see three babies. My kids loved it and so did us adults! The tour lasted about and hour and half and the boat ride itself was fun.

Our family (4 adults & 3 kids under 3 years old) took a trip with Captain Jeff & Deckhand Jessie, and we had a great time. Both were very friendly and knowledgable about the area & the wildlife/marine life. We saw 5-6 dolphins, some came within 10 feet of the boat, and the kids loved it. Reasonably-priced drinks (soda, water,... More
