The cruise should have been canceled for bad weather. It was cold and very cloudy. Therefore no sunset. Almost didn’t see “A” dolphin. Was lucky to see only one, not a few together. On Groupon said we see Manatee too. Definitely not. No mention of bathroom on boat for a 3 hour trip. I feel that should have been told to passengers.

If it wasn’t for the person telling us about the animals and plants, it would have been a total lost of ($50.40)money in time. Did get a few shell. I felt the company was worried about the profit then making sure passengers got what the paid for.

The Captain kept saying, tomorrow and next day will be better weather, as if we will be here. Less alone pay for another day to do the cruise again.

We enjoyed our cruise with Capt. Ty and Ryan. The boat was comfortable and the blue awning covered the whole boat so we were protected from the sun. Most importantly we saw Dolphins! Many! It was great! Book now.

Boat was almost full for a 90 min sunset cruise. There was a young man ON HIS PHONE talking SO LOUD that we couldn't hear the comments by the charter captain. After 15 min...people started yelling at the rude man and he finally hung up.
The we enjoyed the rest of the tour. Saw lots of birds...many dolphins.....and saw a beautiful sunset. The two moderators were very knowledgeable and answered every question. Thank you for a great time.

We did the 1.5 hour sunset tour. It was a very nice tour, we saw some dolphins swimming nearby the boat, many birds and even some manatees in the water. The stop for the sunset was a bit short but due to many clouds that blocked the view a little bit. The guide gave many good informations about wildlife around.

We wanted to take a boat tour and found this site offering a 90minute tour with a chance to see dolphins up close. The price was perfect for what we we looking for and made reservations. We were not disappointed! Saw a couple of manatees poke up thru the water and then there were the dolphins. The cake right up and swam along side the boat playing in the wake. It was so cool. My daughter loves dolphins and this simply made the trip to Florida perfect for her. A shoutout to the captain and his crew who provided a fun and educational tour! Highly recommended.

Took the trip with some girlfriends from Wisconsin, we had a great time! Enjoyed seeing the manatee and all the dolphins following the boat playing in the wake. Would recommend it to anyone! Great for kids too! FYI- the best seats are in the back of the boat.

We went for a 3 hour dolphin and seashell tour and it was amazing! Best experience on our holiday. Staff was friendly and had lots of knowledge about wildlife that they shared. Will come back!

We took the $20 dolphin charter. I was very nervous that I just paid for a simple boat ride. However, we saw so many dolphins! The guides were very knowledgeable. They take many safety precautions. Well, worth the money!

I made a reservation and had the confirmation number but when we got to the dock after driving almost an hour we were not greeted by an employee. I called the phone number and a lady came down and apologized that they had changed to a new reservation system (Why would they not prepare employees for that change?) and that the boat was not going out that day. She offered another day but our schedule with other people in our group would not allowe us to reschedule at that time. This was supposed to be the highlight of our trip. Very bad business practices someone should have called or emailed us Monday night.
