We saw many dolphins up close and the captain and his wife were very friendly! We had a crew of 12 including 8 kids ranging in ages from 5 to 14 and they all enjoyed it!!! It is rare to find an outing that fits for all of those ages!

The facility and vessels were clean. The husband and wife staff were polite and knowledgeable. We saw plenty of dolphins and got a relaxing ride. The price was very reasonable and it was an overall great experience.

Went on sunset tour for our honeymoon. Had a good time. Saw tons of dolphins and learned a lot about the area and had a pirate battle. Will do it again.
