I booked my experience for the first day of my trip, and mother nature did not behave. As a result, the experience got cancelled. The gentleman at the booth was so accommodating and offered either a refund or to reschedule the experience. I had had the opportunity to take this tour before and wanted my mom to enjoy it. I reschedule it. Glad, I did, the experience was great, did see the dolphins and enjoyed not only the view but also the narrative offered by the coolest ladies I've ever heard!
You are free to bring your cooler with alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages, and if you are hungry, you can get some snacks (chips) on board!
Do bring a swimsuit so you can spend some time in the Compass Island water!
I recommend to book this experience on the first day of your trip in case mother nature misbehaves again! You will not regret it!
