This was a great way to spend 2 hours away from the hustle of the beach. The captain and crew really knew the waters and the dolphins - they even have names for some of them. They know how to find them without luring them with food, and in the process of looking for dolphins they teach you about the... More

My family is celebrating my son's 7th birthday. This sunset dolphin cruise was excellent! Rachel and the captain were very nice, knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. The entire boat sung happy birthday to my son, and they got to drive the boat. We saw a lot of dolphins and the nature tour was nice also. Snacks we only $1! Thanks again!

My son is obsessed with dolphins, so of course we had to take a dolphin cruise. I like that this company doesn't use feeding or tricks to lure dolphins in, they just know where to find them and were not aggressive at all. They really showed respect to these awesome mammals. And, to show their gratitude back toward us, the... More

This is not like the other Dolphin Cruises... They both offer something different, and it depends on the atmosphere you are looking for. Things we liked about the cruise: It was low key, slow paced for the most part. The kids enjoyed being on the water. We liked that it took you to the back bays, though honestly not quite... More

We went on this cruise in part because it is not just a dolphin cruise but also nature swamp tour. They have very good guide and very conscientious around the dolphins unlike other cruise boats we saw. I would highly rev come d this cruise.

Very nice captain and deck hand. They go the extra mile with having blankets for you and they sell snacks on board but you can bring your own. Good music was playing and the boat was very clean. A bathroom is available. They do a good job of getting you close to the dolphins and are knowledgeable about them. Our... More

I was able to get in a Cetacean the following day at 11 so I took it. Price and Experience was great. Friendly... More

If you get tired of of the sand and sun try taking a Cetacean Dolphin Cruise. The cruise takes about 2 hours. The Captain is very entertaining and very informative. They allow you to bring a cooler with drinks and food or you can buy beverages on the boat. We saw lots of dolphins and laughed a lot too! They... More

This is not the best dolphin cruise that I have been on, but for the price, it is well worth your time. The crew is very friendly, but could be a bit more informative. However, they do deliver on finding dolphins. We saw numerous dolphins at a very close range. It is a very relaxed atmosphere and a very pleasant... More
