My husband and I chose the 6:30 cruise, so we could watch the sunset. The captain and crew members were nice and knowledgeable. Not only did we see dolphins (and sharks!) the captain provided a lot of fun facts and some history! He made sure people on both sides of the boat were able to view the dolphins. We had a really fun time!

Fantastic! Everything about it! Saw so many dolphins! The crew was fun and knowledgeable! We had a range of 72 to 3 year old and everyone loves it.

Captain Jason, Randy, and Cody were excellent as a crew. We took the sunset dolphin cruise and saw some dolphins. Even if we hadn’t, cruising at sunset was beautiful in and of itself. Randy was a great dancer, Cody was personable, Jason was funny. You can’t go wrong with this crew, ship, and experience.
