We had a very nice time. We saw lots of dolphins and seeing the warships and shrimp boats was quite interesting and the captain made sure to tell us the highlights of each ship's history. We also saw osprey, pelicans, cormorants and many others. The shrimp, corn and kielbasa was terrific - especially the shrimp....so fresh and sweet - loved... More

Loved the interactive teaching on local sea life. The dolphins were amazing swimming and playing alongside the boat. Captain let me take the wheel for a bit (supervised of course😊) Chose this outing for my birthday. It was a perfect choice.

What a great time! Captain Paul and Juan welcomed my self and my blind father onboard with compassion, kindness and a genuine likeability that made me relax immediately. They engaged everyone on board as if they were friends. The ride was smooth, educational, fun and full of dolphins. I was leaning over the bow watching a dolphin run with us... More

Rosco and Wilson are the homies!! Great time out in the bay. Would recommend any day. Only $10 for each person on the Christmas special for two hours! DOS MY DUDE. But to be calm about its a great idea for all family types. Even if your kids are whiners they WILL see dolphins and it will be dope. Liz... More

Once again, Breakaway Cruises truly outdid themselves! From the friendly and always smiling staff, to the Captain and owners, everyone helped make this a perfect Vacation. (Even better than the vacation there in June.) Brad did a great job with our fabulous condo, scheduling our events, and recommending the best weekend hot spot. The Bay Fishing was a blast, and...

So much better than before! Got a great discount on our tickets, and the bay fishing was AWESOME! Captain was great, (late getting there, but really great)! His 1st mate was amazing too, and very helpful! We got a little too far out into the bay, and the waves were too much for most on the boat..everyone was a little... More
