Great time dining at the various places along this wonderful stretch of water. Was fun watching the boats and ships come and go as we had our meals.

Granted, it was a cold rainy day - but the person at the desk who took our fare nor the person who captained the ferry nor his assistant were in the least bit friendly or welcoming. We felt like they didn't like their job much.

Went on the cruise to see dolphins. We were not disappointed. Captain was great and ran the tour with only the 4 of us. He had a great sense of humour and you could tell he enjoyed his work!

We've come here for the ferry to San Jose Island, and gone on a couple of Dolphin Watch trips. The folks here are friendly and professional, you know you're in good hands. Our skipper found dolphins the others missed, and got plenty close to them!

This was a great trip. Left at 7:00 am and came back at 11:10 am. The trip was very enjoyable. Already left a review for San Jose Island. Jetty Boat trip was very quick and efficient.

I doubt they will respond to this post. Give them a call and I'm sure they will let you know. It is a large boat. I think the electric rod and reel is the limiting factor on the max capacity. (They only have so many... More
