I love this boat trip so much that I always bring my friends and family when we visit from the UK. This is my 3rd time and we always get to see dolphins and collect amazing shells on the stop-off. You sail out to a nearby sand bank and get 30 mins to wander off and explore, wish so much... More

The cruise was great. My husband and I took the sunset cruise and were very pleased. We left around 4 45 pm and stopped at the sand bar that is part of the park to gather seashells. Then when the sun was setting, the captain made a slow circle so we could watch the sunset. It was beautiful and the... More

Very pushy sales staff. We expected information about the water birds, land formations, or flora and fauna, but none of that happened. They advertised that there would be information about sponges, but none was given. We were taken near some dolphins, but no effort was made to give additional information that saying "they (dolphins) don't want to play with us... More

We won't be going on this cruise again, the people we made the reservation with were difficult, we were constantly being pushed to do dinner in there restaurant and shop in their store. The boat ride wasn't bad but we have enjoyed others more

Myhusband and I took this tour because we wanted to see dolphins and because we wanted to go to Anclote island and see the light house and go shelling. The tour promised this and delivered. It is not a narrative ( history and ecology) tour. We saw a whole pod of dolphins herding fish. We were very close to the... More

Turned out we weren't leaving till 2:00PM. WOW! What a huge boon doggle. So with some time... More

My husband and I and daughter and son in law went on the two hour cruise and as we are from the UK, this is something we had never done before. We found the whole experience very enjoyable, with the staff on board very friendly and helpful. We couldn't believe the price of the drinks, so cheap with cocktails only... More
