Our customers' comfort is our 1st priority. We start by boarding you upon arrival so that you may enjoy our ultra comfy padded seats, and fully canopied covered boat- sunscreen is optional. From the moment we locate the first pod of wild dolphin, until our excursion ends, you'll be amazed by the phenomenal dolphin shows aboard our spacious boat. less
