Fun crew, pretty sunset, tasty drinks (blue lemonade was delicious), cute pictures (be brave and ask someone to take your picture)! Few parts were really rocky, but it was funny watching people balance. There were about 60 people on the boat, at least that’s what it seemed like. We sat at times but mostly we didn’t mind standing :) We saw some dolphins. Would definitely go again 🤍

Boat ride was nice. Seating could be more comfortable. Disappointing that we didn’t see any dolphins, but we could come back again at no charge. Won’t happen for we live in Minnesota. Nice gesture.

I paid to see the dolphin s not the celebrity homes. Running from side to side was a JOKE!!! Also,, someone could fall and get hurt. It was a waste of my money.

Breathtaking views! Crew was fun, friendly and informative. Very hot, but that's what you get during the summer.
