Excellent tour! They did a great job of making sure we saw dolphins and circled around to help everyone on the boat have a chance to take a look. Everyone was incredibly friendly. Overall great experience.

Yes, they have different packages and different prices. Yes or yes is one per person and I’m pretty sure the unlimited includes beer. I don’t remember well but we had something unlimited and we had beer.

Tamer live entertainment most nights also. Not a loud band, but usually...More
