We did the Sunset cruise. Captain provided a lot of information on the area. There were plenty of dolphins. Some were even jumping out of the water.

I booked the sunset dolphin tour on September 20th to celebrate our anniversary during our vacation. The trip was very relaxing and entertaining. The captain was a hoot! We saw dolphins on several occasions during the tour. Thank you for a great time!

We've taken trips before and have always seen dolphins on each trip. This time we took family members who had never watched dolphins before. There were so many dolphins that we couldn't keep track of them. It was amazing to watch all of them. Good...More

The boat wasn't very impressive. However, it was so much fun and seeing the dolphins jumping up was exhilarating. I felt like a kid. They had drinks and a few snacks very reasonable.

The cruise around the sound was very relaxing. We did see some dolphins, just being dolphins and that was a treat. The crew were engaging and funny and even gave us lunch recommendations after our tour. This was a great time.

Only a half dozen customers, which was nice. Captain was great at keeping us in the middle of dolphin action. Probably saw 50-80 dolphins over the whole trip. Even without sightings, the ride was scenic. Worth price of admission.
