There are many cruises to pick from in this area, but this by far has to be one of the best! Price is right and the people that run this are very friendly and knowledgeable! They take the time to let you know what has gone on in the area you tour and will answer your questions during your time... More

My husband, young daughter and I took the two hour dolphin and nature cruise and it was fabulous! Captain Ross and Deckhand Sherry made us feel right at home on their boat, a catamaran named The Explorer. We saw several Dolphins, much to our daughters delight, and then we explored the bayou as the sun began to set. It was... More

While looking for a dolphin cruise during our vacation, we read the reviews and decided to try Cetacean Cruises. We were amazed above and beyond of the knowledge of our Captain Russ and his staff. If you are looking for a cruise that won't disappoint then look no further. They even let our 6yr old son tell a knock-knock joke... More

First of all the staff is very nice and accomodating. I called 3 times to reschedule (I know that can be annoying), and there was not a problem at all. Since you get there the staff make you feel like they are happy you are there. They go out of their way to please you. Even the dolphins like Cetacean... More

We took the 2 hour cruise to see dolphins. Got so close that when I leaned over the side of boat, I got sprayed. Wonderful people, so knowledgeable, and so eager to answer questions. Gave great recommendations for restaurants as well

Great staff, very caring and knowledgable. We took young kids on the dolphin and nature cruise and we all enjoyed it! We saw dolphins up close in their natural habitat.

VERY mom and pop... VERY cool and personable. We saw four groups of dolphins, great scenery, and heard dozens of "dad jokes."

Don't let the website scare you aware about the dolphin SMART program they follow. We chose this place because of that and they didn't disappoint. We had dolphins along side our boat for the majority of the cruise. Cruise is a bad word though we stayed in neutral and floating with them to ensure they did not get hurt or... More
