We start by boarding you upon arrival so that you may enjoy our comfy padded seats, and canopied covered boat [sunscreen is optional on our boat]. From the moment we locate the first pod of wild dolphin, until our excursion ends, you'll be amazed by the phenomenal dolphin shows aboard our spacious boat. P.S. We let you keep your shoes on!

Our family of 8 with small children LOVED this cruise! The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable and knew exactly where the dolphins were. The kids also got to drive the boat! Highly recommend this cruise!

Entertaining and fun afternoon. We watched dolfins, seals and birds close up. There were several exhibits. Both educational and a show to remember.

Thanks for the great day and all the extra humor from your staff. Very easy to get mesmerized by the rocking waves and looking for dolphins. Great price and would return for sure. Thank you

We didn’t have high expectations for a $10 cruise, but it turned out to be a great experience! We saw many dolphins playing around and thoroughly enjoyed the boat ride through the bay. The owner was very personable and friendly as well. Definitely recommend!
