This little paddle steamer type boat is an ideal one to get up close to Dolphins whilst out in the Gulf of Mexico. The boat has a huge backwash that Dolpins love to jump and play in. It's cheaper than some of the other dolphin trips that guaranee you sightings but you cannot get close enough. This one is a... 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

We had a good time on the boat, it was comfortable and stable. We were the first tour that day and they started out a little ragged but they got their act together and we had fun and seen about 15 Dolphins.

An enjoyable 90 min trip. We saw a good number of Dolphins and managed to get some pictures. Don't get excited about shell picking on compass island, would have preferred longer with the dolphins . Nice key ring and photo to take away as a reminder of the day

What a rude man! As we got on the boat the boss insisted we had our photos taken. We said we didn't want them and took a seat. He called us back and insisted. We still said no at which point he asked us to get off. I have never in all my life been treated in such a manner... More
