Thanks for nothing. After calling in advance and planning our day around the 1:00 cruise, we stood around waiting for nothing. I will try Simple Sailing next. These people are undependable :(

What a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours. Not many people on our cruise and we had a peaceful time watching dolphins and just enjoying the views of the Bay. Our Captain provided some good information about the mansions & animal life. Reasonably priced drinks. We did leave a tip because we appreciated the adventure........suggestions for tipping were a bit much. All and all a rewarding experience. Just go and enjoy!

We took some family members on this cruise and we did see quite a few dolphins. The seating on the outside deck was tables and chairs which didn't make much sense. The boat kept circling in the same area and the scenery was interesting at first but it got pretty boring the 3rd time around. Actually the ride was too long!

We did the 1:00 cruise it was $22 an adult for an hour and half. We had a great ime on the water. They showed us some of the coast guard boats. We saw dolphins jumping around. At one point they were swimming with the boat which was very cool. The last half hour was looking at the 30 million dollar houses. They have drinks you can buy on the boat. I would recommend this tour for any age.
