It was an amazing Mother’s Day gift for my aunts and mother in law. The people in charge patiently waited for the rest of my party who was in line for the bathroom. They would announce where the dolphins were so you knew where to look and came by to take pictures of you! Good pictures at that. Overall amazing experience:) planning to go again next month

We had an amazing time out on the boat! The captain did a great job locating several dolphins. We even had a pod swim alongside the boat! Definitely a memorable trip’
