Always look forward to taking trips on the Silver Bullet each summer. With Captain John at the wheel, he never disappoints! He keeps the trip exciting, always engages with the guests. He’s an expert at maneuvering the boat to move with the dolphins to ensure...More

We have been taking this ride once a year for at least 20 years. It never gets old! We love to see the dolphins, but there is nothing like the ocean breeze in your face when the boat picks up some speed on the coast!...More

I called and they suggested that you make a reservation. They also recommended that you arrive 30 minutes before sailing time. When I arrived the boat it was half full. You don't need to pay when you reserve your seats.

You already are going to get wet on the ride so rain is no problem. If it is windy they will take you on the back bay but you will still see dolphins!!

The silver bullet is a speed boat ride. Some 2 year old like it, some fall asleep and some get a little nervous. It's loud, windy and wet! That being said, it all depends upon the 2 year old!
