We took the whole family (3 kids under 10, Grandparents, and 2 aunts) out for a dolphin cruise and had a wonderful time. Evidently, the pontoon boats do not always enter the gulf, but due to the calm conditions, we were able to enter the ocean. We saw a lot of sting rays and even a hammerhead shark! less than 50 yards from where we had been swimming off the beach earlier in the day. After that, we headed back into the intercoastal waterways and cruised the bay in hopes of seeing dolphins. We were excited to see 20+ dolphins flipping and flopping for our amusement. We always have fun at the beach and pool on our vacations, but this trip on a boat will form lasting memories. (I will say, that the "glass bottom" portion of the boat seems to be used as a marketing ploy rather than being useful.) Highly recommended trip!!!!
