Family from out of town enjoyed the absolutely beautiful day and the interesting narration of the tour. It was not at all canned but a story shared by people really enjoying showing off the local features. We saw several dolphins, including a baby, and found the history very interesting. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.

DON'T GET A GROUPON for this tour. They do not answer the phone to schedule. They say they will call you back at the end of the day. We left messages two days in a row...no response. They do not allow you to schedule online with a Groupon code. super sad we lost the opportunity to do this, but I'm not paying a Groupon and then have to pay full price too.

Santa loved the trip - calm and relaxing after a long night of delivering toys around the world. Hope Mrs. Claus books the sunset cruise in the near future! Locals - consider this tour! We learned all kinds of special info we didn’t know and we live in Cocoa Beach. Much better than the local dolphin tours - we saw 30+ dolphins while out and those were before we took our gift cards into Grills and watched the Dolphins on the big screen. Well worth the cost. We will be back! Happy New Year from Beachside Santa

Excellent tour, feels like you are on a boat with friends. Very informative and enthusiastic crew. Very careful with covid, hand sanitizer around, partitions between groups. We were lucky to see many dolphins and they showed us many beautiful homes and described birds with full behavioral details. Such a great afternoon today. There were families and couples on the boat and all seemed relaxed and having a good time. Thank you.
