Excellent pontoon ride. Two hour tour and we saw several dolphins, egrets, hawk, pelicans. Both crew members were knowledgeable and always looking out to ensure that we did not miss any sightings

It was a foggy morning but so peaceful and serene on the water. We saw so many dolphins and because of the shallow water, could see them swimming by. Captain Bob and Brandon are knowledgeable and this was our best boat tour ever!!

I don’t recall a special rate for seniors- only adults and children posted on their website. We found a good deal on Groupon.
