“Great Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Our trip was wonderful. We took our 19 month old daughter who loved the boat ride and seeing the dolphins and birds. We saw a lot of dolphins out swimming around. We were able to see a few hunting for food and two swam for a short period of time in the wake of the boat. We were hoping to see more dolphins up close, but most of them were pretty far out. The boat seats were hot when we first got on board. I would recommend bringing a towel to sit on. We couldn't hear the guy speaking for most of the ride because the boat was too loud, but what we could hear was professional and educated. All in all, we had a wonderful time and would recommend this experience to everyone!

“Very nice tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Capt Josh was very knowledgable and provided an interesting dissertation during our voyage. We were disappointed that we did not get to see the "up close and personal" show that others had written about. It was thru no fault of of guides, it was just the way things worked out. It was a very enjoyable 90 minutes, and you really can't beat the price.

“Entertaining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

The kids loved the boat ride, the adults loved the crew members' humor, and we all loved glimpsing the dolphin. They're gone as quickly as you see them, but it's still a thrill. We chose Capt. Derek's because their boats are fast. I figured if the dolphin didn't show we'd still have a good ride. No need to worry though. The boat followed the shrimp boats and the dolphin were all over. Great way to break up a week at the beach.

“Dolphins Galore!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We saw a lot of Dolphins. Some of them were very close to the boat. Great crew! Bring a video camera to best capture the experience, the dolphins are too fast for a camera.
