This is the best excursion ever. We went on the sunset cruise. We saw the dolphins. Had a good snorkel location. Drinks little snacks and fresh pineapple on board. And a perfect sunset on board. It was perfect. Thanks Dolphin Safari for this great experience.

Victor, our tour guide, was great. Only 6 people per boat so you don't have to worry about crowds. Worth the $. Free soda and water and snacks. Basically guaranteed to see Dolphins

Small boat, 5 people filled it pretty good. Our guide, Vic, was new to the company but had a wealth of information about where to find Dolphins, local history, and birds. Had a great time and well worth it.
