My wife and I enjoyed the cruise. We did see some dolphins right at the start. The crew was nice and it was fun being on the water in that area. It's beautiful. The boat is decent and it was easy to buy the cruise with any credit card.

I booked a cruise during the off season. It was affordable, and there was plenty of room. Buddy worked with me every step of the way. He even dropped treasure for the little ones. We saw lots of dolphins, and Buddy gave us lots of information! Definitely recommend! We'll be back for sure!

Can't say enough about the courtesy of the crew and the value offered for the price. We got to see several dolphins and we're lucky enough to get a flyover by the Blue Angels. You shouldn't hesitate to book through them.

We went on the last cruise of the day and were not disappointed. The crew were especially friendly and entertaining. We left the dock at the correct time and were watching numerous Dolphin in no time at all with lots of them seen up close. Unlike some of the other boats we saw this boat sits low and close to...

My husband and I had a great time cruising for dolphins with Captain Bubba and Diane! It was a cold October day, and we were glad to be able to sit inside the cabin until dolphins were sighted. While sitting inside, we were able to get a beer from the cash bar for a reasonable price. Snacks and other drinks... More

Crew was awesome! Took us straight to the dolphins and on the way back they even pulled a treasure chest over board and all the kids got some treasure. Seeing the small children so excited was a delight. The boat was very comfortable and air conditioned inside if you didn't want to be out in the heat.

Captain Bubba was knowledgeable and friendly. He relayed interesting information through out the tour. His boat was air conditioned and clean. We took our 85 year old Mother with us and they were accommodating to her needs. I highly recommend this dolphin tour. (This was a family girls trip.)

Capt. Bubba and Ms. Diane, are the best, very enjoyable cruise, saw alot of dolphins and it was very nice having A/C on a really hot day. If you are in the area make sure to book a trip with Blue Dolphin it is well worth your money!
