We had such a memorable experience on our dolphin cruise. Our captain was great, knowledgeable of the area and dolphin behavior and took his time making sure we saw tons of dolphins! They were everywhere. The ride was smooth and we got to watch a beautiful sunset as a bonus...a friendly company, you feel safe and the value is top notch. The farewell message was the best news, too.

I enjoy the cruise. Everything was really nice. The captain was very knowledgeable, of the history. However, When, I purchased my picture, I notice, that there were no African American people, on the picture cover. I would like, to see more African American people, on the picture cover.

Not bad I guess. Too many people on the boat to get a good viewing experience at times. And, of course, most people in these parts won’t appreciate this, but I don’t like having God shoved down my throat after I’ve paid a lot of money to have a relaxing experience. So the owner of the boat believes in God, but not all people do. I didn’t pay for you to shove it down my throat. Don’t tell me to have a blessed day. Don’t hand out souvenirs to all the kids with Jesus Christ on it spreading your propaganda.
