Have no idea if the tour is okay or not. Tried to call 7 or 8 times, most of which went unanswered even by voicemail. The times I was able to leave a message, no one called back. Awful customer service.

We celebrated our anniversary with a sunset cruise. It rained all day but we wound up with a beautiful sunset! The crew were friendly and helpful, the captain did a great job of navigating the waves and making sure we saw dolphins!

We used a groupon to take a sunset cruise. It was the perfect time of day to avoid the high 90s temps and bright sun. The cruise was great, a good length and beautiful. The best part for us, though, was customer service. While waiting to board we walked across the street to the beach and our passes, name tags,... More

When you purchase a voucher such as groupon or living social, they make it such an incredible hassle to book a cruise, with almost no choice of when you are able to take it, it is definitely not worth the money you saved. Really a rip off.

Nice ride, good atmosphere, friendly crew. Fun and inexpensive way to get out and get some sun and some views of the area on the water.

The boat was clean and in excellent condition and the staff made you feel like a valued customer. I will repeat this outing the next time I am in the area. Highly recommended

Was such a great experience. They really cater to young kids and parents alike. Saw several dolphin pods. Well worth it especially with young kids. Crew was funny and great. I highly recommend this boat tour.

We went this week and was very dissatisfied. Saw no Dolphins, and rode up and down the coast with a boatload of drunks--@ 10am! Tropics didn't even have tropical music! Old boat, old music. No fun! Never again for us at any price!

I recently did the Sunset Cruise and had an amazing time. I've done the dolphin cruise before and has just as much fun. I enjoyed the music on the Sunset Cruise and it was awesome to see the sun set across the ocean. I would definitely recommend doing all of their cruises!
