We took the sunset dolphin cruise. Incredible! We saw several dolphins and the sunset was BEAUTIFUL. Lots of photo opportunities. I would suggest sitting in the front. It was not overcrowded, but I think we lucked out with an even better view by sitting up front. Tour guides were great. We had ages 12, 13, 19-24, and 30+. Everyone enjoyed... More

This company offers two different tours, a dolphin/nature and a sailing tour. Our group of four chose the sunset sailing and it did not disappoint. The boat is very nice and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. Would definitely do again.

We did a private 2 hour sunset sailing cruise. We had a party of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids ages 7-11). Everyone had a wonderful time! I was looking for a trip that felt like a friend taking us out on his sail boat, instead of a large company with a fleet of boats fitting as many people as... More

Yay! We saw dolphins!! There are quite a few dolphin cruises here, but we chose this one based on the reviews about how earth-friendly they were to not manipulate the dolphins to come to the boat, etc... We loved it. Saw a few dolphins, saw them jump out of the water and that just thrilled our kiddos! The captain was... More

Website says $15 for 1.5 hour tour. We booked it and arrived to find out its $20 for a two hour tour. We did use the coupon on their website to reduce it to $17. We saw dolphins before we even boarded the boat. Once we headed out we saw three or four right away. Several came right up to... More

We chose the 830am cruise. Asides from having to wait for some stragglers, the trip took off almost on schedule. Right away we saw dolphins, and right away I realized that as a landlubber, I would enjoy the friendly deck hand and captain, who went out of their way to entertain the 30 person tour. We saw the bay, learned... More

We had a great time on this two hour cruise. The time is spent in a protected bay and salt water swamp. The water was calm a peaceful which allowed us to easily see the dolphins. We saw lots of them, some within a few yards of the boat. The crew was friendly and informative. The drinks and snaks on... More

We took a trip for $20/ea (there were 5 of us) to spend about 20 minutes looking at dolphins following a shrimp boat then the rest of the time we were taken to the swamp to talk about alligators, deer, snakes and boars that no one ever sees (nor did we). I would loved to have wasted less time on... More

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!
