Great time!

Captain and crew were very nice and knowledgeable. We saw dolphins and manatees while the sun set beside us. Would definitely do this again!

Our family, kids, and grand kids had the best time. We went on the dolphin cruise. We didn't see much of the dolphins but watching the sunset and other wildlife was very enjoyable. The captain and crew entertained the whole family. It was like being on a boat with your family and friends. Good Job!!

Also to met a convenience store in the middle of a lagune was crazy. And finally give my daugter a ride with the... More

The captain, JR, was excellent. He is very knowledgable, engaging, interactive and personable. The cruise was very well run and he knew what he was doing. We saw manatees, dolphins and cormorants! We absolutely loved it and would definitely do it again. Thank you, JR, and excellent 1st mate, Dimitri!!

Tour guides were very knowledgeable about the wildlife, able to answer questions about Dolphins, etc. They were very friendly and courteous. The boat is a pontoon with bench seats so it was somewhat difficult to get pictures or videos if sitting in an outside seat, not to mention if you're touring on a day when the dolphins aren't very active,...

Had a wonderful evening on Banana Bay sunset cruise. Captain Cook was great and Stephen, first mate, told us about a lot of the islands and areas that we were going by. Went with a group of friends and had a wonderful time.
