We didn't see any dolphins. Although the ad and the website states "We Guarantee you'll see dolphin!" the company refused to give a refund. In addition to not seeing any dolphins, the captain started the tour by making off color jokes about the women's restroom....More

Everything about this cruise was great with the exception of waiting 30 minutes before hand. The kids loved it and we loved it. We loved the water war against the competition ship. It was so fun! Loved seeing the dolphins. They put on a show....More

I would have given this a 5 but they charged me an automatic tip when I booked online and then repeatedly asked for more tips when I got on the boat. It also says the cruises are $15 but that is a child's price. It...More
