We had another awesome experience on the Sea Screamer sunset dolphin cruise last week! We saw a ton of dolphins surfing the waves, learned some things about the beach, and took our friends on their very first voyage on the boat. The bathrooms on board are well kept, very clean, and easily accessible, the crew was extremely friendly and informative on sea life and the area, and they serve drinks and snacks on board for a nominal fee. They've always had the beer, pop, water, and snacks, but this year they added a punch that was to die for!! This is by far our favorite thing to do at the beach and we come back year after year! I'd highly recommend this to couples, friends, and families visiting the beach!

My daughter just graduated from college and before she and her brother started summer work (both are Life Guards & Head Swim / Dive Coaches) we took a quick family vacation. After two days on the beach we decided to break it up and take a swim with the dolphins/snorkel excursion. However, it's overwhelming what you see as far as companies. My wife happened across this company and read the reviews. She called and they setup a private trip for 6 of us (BF and GF came with us). It was awesome, Captain Cody is fantastic. He grew up in Panama knows the ins and outs, the little places to go the history behind it, where and why things are etc. We snorkeled the kids got in the water with the dolphins (they are wild so they swam away but you could see them and hear them!). Cody knew where to go and the fact he loves what he does makes it even more special. VERY well mannered and fun. I highly recommend this company. They are family owned and family oriented. Very very nice - we WILL use them again and pass along the good word to everyone we know.

My husband and I booked the sunset trip to celebrate our anniversary. This trip was nothing less than amazing and exceeded all of my expectations. The reviews were one reason I went with the Sea Screamer and I am glad I did. Captain Cody and first deck hand Michael were great. Captain Cody did a great job giving us some historical facts about the area on the trip. He also tried his best taking a little extra time to find the dolphins, which were amazing, I got a great video of them riding the waves behind the boat. Michael was there for whatever we needed, even bringing drinks right to us. The rum punch was awesome! They played music. This was my first experience out on a boat and it was a great one. I would recommend the Sea Screamer to anyone!
