We had a great time on the dolphin tour. We are a diverse family with kids ranging from 17-7. Chad was great and everyone was begging to do it again. It's for both the adrenaline junkies and sight seers. Thank you for a great morning.

We have friends visiting us & the wife of the couple has special needs that make it necessary for her husband to help her get ready for the day. Therefore the 8:00 & 10:00am times for the Dolphin Tour were not doable. They graciously arranged a later tour so my husband & our friend could enjoy a great tour!! We... More

I highly recommend taking the dolphin tour! Me and my girlfriend had a great time checking out the dolphins. With some only half a meter away, this was truly a memorable experience! We were guided by Chad, a really relaxed and professional guide, not focused on the clock but on your experience. I myself was such a fan of the... More

Had a great time on the dolphin tour with Chad as our tour guide. We saw many dolphins and other wildlife. We actually saw our first dolphin on the beach in front of the sandpiper. We really just had a fantastic time riding the jet skis. I liked how he gave us a good 20 minutes to get acclimated to... More
