Captains Ian and Steve were very pleasant and professional at the same time. Our group of six had a fantastic time watching the dolphins swim, play, and jump right next to the boat. Got some beautiful shells on Shell Island. It was a great afternoon!

We did not wear life vests. They were in bins on the boat if we needed them. They had a special bin for children. I recommend you call them to ask.
