We had a great time. The captain was great about stopping for dolphin sightings and informative about a scuttled ship. Would recommend to family and friends easily!

Highly recommend this excursion. Our captains were friendly, informative and in no hurry to get back to the dock. We saw more dolphins than on a family vacay to FL. Great price too!
