      Family fun
      We had a lovely time, the sunset from the boat is beautiful. The crew took some photos for me using my phone that turned out great! We only saw a couple dolphins, but I know they're wild and unpredictable. So we had a lovely time all the same.

      Sunset Cruise
      An absolutely magical experience the dolphins were showing off their moves. The Captain and Crew were amazing and knew exactly where to go to see these beautiful creatures. Definitely a one of a kind experience.

      Memories made!
      We had a great time during our fall break. The crew was friendly and shared their knowledge with us. We patiently waited and eventually got a great show with dolphins jumping in our wake and also swimming right in front at the same speed of the boat - so cool - highly recommend! Memories made and the highlight of our vacation!

      Fantastic dolphin cruise
      We brought our 4-year-old granddaughter on her first beach trip and the one thing she wanted to see was dolphins. We booked this one at the last minute and they did everything they could to find some for us. Not just 1 but 3. We also were able to see some large jelly fish and lots of sharks. The crew was kind and made sure to point out where to look and what we were seeing. They made this 4-year-old extremely happy.

      Great experience. Staff is wonderful. Kids loved it
      We had the cruise booked at 2:30, staff messaged early to make sure we will be there on time. Saw some dolphins which the kids loved. They also had some snacks on board to purchase as well.

      Dolphin Cruise???
      The cruise was okay, and the staff were great. We did not see many dolphins as the crew was not able to locate any. They also seemed to be following another boat to see what they saw. In my opinion I feel that the crew should know where to find dolphins during certain times of the day to give the gust the best experience.

    We saw a lot of dolphins and the captain had them riding our bow wave for quite some time. Numerous dolphins within feet playing. Highly recommend this as a must do.

    Great place. Will agree with other reviews, towels are a bit wore out and like sand paper. BUT, place is way worth it! Great view of ocean, clean, nice pools, plenty of parking and no issues with speed of elevators but it is Tgiving week, so guessing other times of the year this place is hopping.

    Nearly impossible to see anything from inside of boat. Crew did not talk about area or sights so visitors knew more about area; but they did guide us to see dolphins.

    The cruise was amazing! The boat was beautiful and had plenty of room to move around to get different views. The Captain and crew made it an incredible adventure, and worked very hard to make sure we got to experience dolphins. 10 out of 10 would do again!

    So beautiful! Great crew. Dolphins surfed with us in our wake at sunset. What’s not to like? Plenty of places to sit on the boat. Great experience! Thank you.

    BEST part of our vacation! Great crew, saw dolphins jumping through the wake of the boat, and had an enjoyable time. Inexpensive, yet memorable activity.
