I found a buy one get one free deal on Living Social for our choice of the Dolphin or Sunset cruises. We opted for the Sunset cruise, however on the night we were scheduled to go, the weather wasn't cooperating, and just a few mins after departing, the captain decided to turn the boat around and not risk the weather...

I live almost an hour away, so I'm local but not too close. So this is something my Mom and I do for a fun day every once in a while. I've probably been on the boat at least 20 times and always see dolphins. The crew are all very friendly and fun. You can get a wristband for all... More

My family used a Groupon as admission, and it was a fun experience. It was very cheap too, as there are unlimited drink bands you can purchase for a little more than just buying two drinks alone without a band. The staff were very friendly and gave a lot of info about the area. We enjoyed it as a first... More

If you want to (1) drink a lot (unlimited beer, wine, etc., bracelet only costs $12 extra) on the upper (smokers) or lower (non-smoking) deck of a high-traffic with loud oldies music and flashing lights, a guy taking lots of pictures, and a gal telling everyone "It's dance time!"; (2) be gathered into a pack for a "group" picture; (3)...

Took the sunset cruise and upgraded for the bracelet for unlimited beer and wine for $11. Great crew, very friendly they had the normal touristy information about the area and the interesting homes on the beach. Good music, just short of 2 hours long.

Booked as a last minute trip after we saw the tour advertised in a leaflet and it was well worth it. The guy at the kiosk was friendly, he processed the tickets fairly quickly and informed us where to go and what time. The advertisement stated 'Guaranteed dolphin watching' and we were not disappointed. After 20 minutes or so we... More

We booked the sunset cruise, upon boarding they want to take your picture, which they make a big thing of. Then you are reminded that the guys work for tips. Nick one of the crew was beyond rude. He never once spoke to us except to make a face and act like an idiot when one of the people in... More

Do not buy bracelets for unlimited drinks. I was told water was included and it was not. Would not have bought if I had known and no refund was given.
