I've been on the dolphin cruise at least 3 times over the last few years. It's always been an enjoyable experience. I'm looking forward to going again. Even if you go without the kids, you'll still have a good time.

This is the best dolphin cruise to take if you have children. The crew was very friendly, informative and made the trip a fun experience. Will definitely book again with them.

Wonderful cruise! Enjoyed the history and captain's interaction with the passengers throughout the trip! Saw an amazing amount of Dolphins while on the morning cruise? Grandchildren and adults were equally entertained in this 90 minute tour. Highly recommend - you are guaranteed to see Dolphins or you may go again FREE!

My family went on this cruise tonight. The captain was very friendly and worked hard to find dolphins for us to see...which we finally did. The boat was very clean and you could walk around freely. There was piped in upbeat music which we also enjoyed. Great trip!

Booked same day, reasonably priced for an hour and half cruise. Rough sea waters and approaching storms ment no dolphin sightings. Crew was attentive and entertaining. Boat was clean and well maintained. $1 drinks and snacks were a plus.

My husband and 2 teens booked the 4 hr fishing trip and my 11 year old and I booked the dolphin cruise. We were all very pleased and even saw 3 sharks on the dolphin cruise. If you book a morning dolphin cruise, you get a discount. We also booked on Wed for Friday. You need to book in advance.... More

Had originally booked a 4 hour on 7/14 and was called a couple hours before and told that trip was cancelled for mechanical reasons. We chose to be placed in the 6 hour afternoon trip on 7/16. Problem 1 - I had three young children and the rods all had 18 or 20 oz weights and no slots on the... More

Hello, Thank you for the review and feedback. Please allow me a moment to address your concerns. 1-There are no rod holders on the boat other than the back of the boat. On larger party boats, it's not all that common to have rod holders. None of the boats in our fleet have them other than the ones that are... More

Booked online for Tuesday, company called to tell us they over booked. Reset for Thursday, moved to Friday due to weather. Finally went, good trip. Not a lot of fish but didn't get sick.

Hi Pamela, Thank you for the review and feedback. Give us another try next time when the weather cools down. With the weather being so hot, fishing is getting tougher since fish like colder deeper waters. We recommend 8-10 hours in the summer for optimal fishing. I'm glad you didn't get sick. Regards, Management More

First I would like to thank the crew in helping my Mom in a wheelchair onto the boat, that was first class service! We saw a bunch of dolphins, which the kids loved! My only dislike is that I was charged the full price for the cruise, and the rest of my group was charged the discounted price of 15.00.... More
