We had the best time, we was able to see several dolphins, and was taken out to an island in the middle of the ocean. I would recommend this to people if you wanted to spend a little time on the water. I personally loved it. Two of the boats worked together and got the dolphins playing, they was jumping... More

Nice crew. They can accommodate a good number of people on each trip. We did see some Dolphins, but nothing that was right up to the boat. I realize that's probably difficult to do with any trip. Anyway, I would recommend.

Price was reasonable and they take your picture when you board the boat. At the conclusion of trip they have pics printed and ready for you to purchase for $6 and key chain is $4. Very informative but seem to concentrate on informing you of the houses along the way rather than looking for dolphins but the small island that... More

I've been on higher-quality trips that come with a higher price. We were walking past on our last day, it was cool and windy, and they were about to leave so we hopped on. It was a low-budget operation but the guys were very knowledgeable and concerned about local wildlife; we stayed out extra time to FIND some dolphins and... More

First day: we paid for dolphin watch trip, waited just to be told the trip was cancelled because there's not enough people. Next day: when asked to apply $2 coupon that I found, the owner got so angry that he canceled the trip. I definitely can understand an anger of the person who are asked to apply a discount he...

We took the sunset sail on the Megabite and had a wonderful time with lots of sightings and encounters with dolphins and a beautiful sunset too.

Worth the money, ok the island is a bit rubbish but it was still nice to pick up some shells and go in the water to cool down. We were on the boat for 95 minutes and spotted plenty of dolphins, many near the boat. I also enjoyed the being shown the houses of the rich and famous as we... More
