I was expecting the price to be higher so I was happy with this. There were 3 dolphin cruise trips per day. The boat was spacious,... More

DO NOT USE THEIR WEBSITE TO BOOK ONLINE!! We made reservations online for a party of six the day before we wanted to go on the sunset cruise, showed up 30 minutes before the boat was supposed to leave and was told they didn't have our reservation and there was nothing they could do about it. The first woman we... More

I personally have never seen this or even heard of it before when a guest completes an online reservation they get to a confirmation screen that gives a confirmation number (you get here once your...

The trip was good and very nice but the captain and helper was very arrogant and rude, not a friendly pair. It was OK otherwise.

Pretty expensive 5 hours, you only fish for 3, $ 55 plus $7.5 for rod rental plus gratuity. But what they said you would catch we did. Small but fun, 5 each on average. Good day on the water.

Went out on a half day fishing trip with Captain Hubbard and his AMAZING boat crew. The entire staff was knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. Excellent customer service. We all laughed a lot and had a really nice afternoon. Even if you don't fish, the ride out into the Gulf is so relaxing, treat yourself. Captain Hubbard has the perfect voice... More
