Delightful boat tour of the gulf to catch the sunset. It included unlimited Beer and Wine. Also got to see Dolphins in their natural habitats. Staff was friendly and helpful. $25 for tour (1:45) plus $14 for unlimited Beer, Wine and Soft Drinks. Was a delightful Bucket list tour.

The boat has an upper open deck where you are out in the sunshine on the dolphin cruise. We saw so many dolphins, they were jumping, swimming ahead, behind and along sude the boat. Brian was so busy calling out the sightings for about 30 to 40 minutes. Great trip, the guys were great and the dolphins were amazing!

We booked a sunset cruise and of course it was a rare evening when there were just too many clouds for a sunset... but we were lucky enough that dolphins decided to join us so that was very cool and made up for the missed sunset. The cruise was affordable compared to other cruises and definitely long enough. There were... More

For the price, it was good value. We were only on the boat about 1 hour, 45 minutes. Nice boat ride but not much to see, through no fault of the boat tour folks. If we were at the very front of the boat that day, we might have seen 2 dolphins for a short time. They just were not... More

My dad and I went on this cruise while I was visiting him in Florida. Everyone was very friendly and helpful! Even though my dad has lived in Florida for years, and I have visited umpteen times, I am never disappointed by the sunsets that I see there. This was a particularly beautiful sunset. The tour also included plenty of... More

This is the second time I have done a dolphin sightseeing cruise with this company and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to do this during their visit to the area. I took my parents, who were visiting from California, and they loved it! The perfect weather only made it that much better. Crew was fun, cheerful and professional!

We went on October 8 at 4:00. There is a cute little waiting deck, the ticket lady and crew were very friendly. The captain offered lots of insights, thought from where I was sitting, it was hard to catch it all. There is an upper deck in full sun, but a great view. The lower deck is shaded with seating.
