We went on Captain Mark's morning dolphin cruise this past Saturday. It was a little hard to find reviews because of the discrepancy in names. The flyer we received at our hotel specifically called this "Captain Mark's" but I couldn't find that listed when I searched for reviews. This was a 1 hr 45 minute nature cruise on the Holiday ship. There was plenty of seating on the ship and everything was in good condition. The waters were calm and we saw many, many dolphins. The weather was perfect, sunny with a nice breeze, but I imagine in the summer the upper decks would be quite hot since there isn't a cover. I recommend taking a hat and wearing sunblock or trying to ride on the lower deck. Captain Mark gave commentary through the first half of the cruise, pointing out dolphins and stopping to idle so everyone could get a good look. He also gave some island history and pointed out interesting points along the cruise route. The return back to port was quiet and relaxing without commentary. Captain Mark did point out dolphins on our return trip, though. For the price, this was the best deal on the island. We didn't want a private cruise or the cost that goes along with that type of excursion, and if that's what you're expecting, keep looking. For a nice couple of hours with good information and plenty of dolphins, this was a great choice. We especially liked the timing because we were able to walk around the shops and restaurants in Shelter Cove Harbor after our cruise.
