What to expect
Expect lots of fun and exciting Dolphin encounters on our tour! From time to time, we have water battles with several other vessels that we encounter while out on the water (rarely on the Sunset Cruise). If time allows the crew pulls a crab pot up to see what the daily catch is to show the kids. And don’t forget about the Hermit Crabs! The kids love to interact with them! If the Dolphin are feeling playful, they often surf in our boat wake while we are cruising! Cruise time is 1 1/2 to 2 hours

Seeing the dolphins breach the water and the water fight with the pirates. Nice smooth ride and the crew was the best. Funny captain.

Great for the whole family
A fun experience! Music was a fun added touch! The kids loved it (and so did us parents)! Once we got into the gulf, we started seeing the dolphin, it was great fun!

Hot family fun!
Great family excursion. We took our 6 year old and Grandma. Dolphins didn’t cooperate with any acrobatics, but we spotted several that swam with the boat. The crew is friendly and great with the kids. The impromptu broadside water gun fight with a passing replica pirate ship was a big hit for everyone. Put on your sunscreen and bring a hat! There’s little shade when waiting to board the boat in a hot parking lot. Water and drinks are sold on board for a very reasonable price $1-2.00. Highly recommend.

Inexpensive fun
This is a fun cruise. You get out into the gulf a little bit and see the dolphins.

Good music. Fun crew. Dolphins out swimming around.

Even if you don’t see dolphins, it’s a fun cruise.

Great value for the money.

Great time

The crew was great! The boat left exactly on time so don't be late! They have soda, water and snacks on board - all reasonably priced so no need to pack anything with you. Dolphins was so fun to see jumping in the wake.

Could have been great, but miserably HOT!!
This was probably the worst cruise we’ve been on. I will say the staff was very friendly, but that was the only good thing about the trip. We did see dolphins which was fun. However, inside the cabin of the boat it was miserably HOT! There was no breeze & ventilation was horrible. Fans would be an EASY fix and cheap. The drinks, dippin dots, and snacks is a nice treat. Get FANS!!
