Awesome adventure on a BIG boat with a fantastic entertainer! Shannon Tanner is a riot! Great jokes for kids and clean adult humor as well. Not marketed as a dolphin tour but several dolphins were seen also.

Two grandsons 6 and a half and 2 and a half. Older one was totally captivated. Shannon tanner had the children into the story and adventure with his dramatic personality. Youngest grandson was probably a little too young for this. Since there was no charge for a toddler it was fine. Will definitely come back.

You and your kids will love this adventure. The boat is large and very comfortable with cool places to sit on a sunny day. We will be back again next year!

We went on the expedition for the first time last week and we enjoyed every second! Our son is five and left there believing he was in fact a real pirate. Not knowing Shannon Tanner personally, the second you meet him you instantly know that he is a genuine person with a love for children. Captain Tanner and his crew... More
