Great Ride - No Dolphin's

We enjoyed our ride, big waves, bald eagle but no dolphins. We were all given a "ticket" to return at another time. Great time!

We went in off-season (late Sept. 2015). The price was $22. per person. We had a two hour boat ride. Lots of fun. Big waves. Got drenched and loved every minute of it! We didn't see any dolphins. The company gave all riders passes for another cruise - the pass never expires. Who can ask for anything better than that.... More

Our family went took the 2-hour dolphin sighting cruise on the Sea Thunder two weeks ago. I'm the skeptical type, so I wasn't expecting to actually see dolphins. Man, was I ever wrong! As a matter of fact, I stopped taking pictures because there were so many! The crew were first-rate... professional, funny, and fun to be with. Definitely sit... More

This was advertised as a dolphin search as well as historical. Once we got going, it was a little hard to understand the captain's voice over the loud speaker but the scenery was great. Out on the ocean, the captain surprised us by picking up speed and splashing just about everyone not the boat! It was so much fun! After... More

Great Family Experience, Lots of Fun, start off with a family/group picture you can purchase for $20, the Captain and first mate really nice, during the trip the Captain tells you some history of the water way, first mate takes some photos of your group if you like, slow ride out of the intercoastal water way then into the ocean,...

We took the 9am trip one day, and ventured up the waterway onto the Atlantic where we came up near a shrimpboat. We saw several dolphins swimming around. They move fast, but I was able to score a couple good pictures. THe waves were pretty choppy that morning, and a lot of people looked a bit green towards the end,... More

We used our free passes to ride the boat. Loved that they had the canopy for people who didn't want to be right out in the sun. Francis was very friendly and made you feel right at home on the ride. Got to see tons of dolphins and even at least one baby.

My kids loved seeing the dolphins. We went on a Monday & the cruise was busy & unfortunately we ended up in the very back of the boat. And of course almost every time a dolphin was spotted people would stand up. Luckily there were a lot of dolphins so we saw a few but I was sitting at the... More
