We have always wanted to do a dolphin cruise and saw this one. It was so fun. We were with only a handful of other people, so we had the whole upper deck to ourselves. It was a little rough heading out and chilly but by the time we were heading back it was so nice. They have a full bar on the boat too and the guides were very informative.

The dolphins tour was amazing! The staff was wonderful (a couple of them only worked for tips I wish I had known cause I don't carry cash on hand) . This is a definite must there were dolphins following trying to keep up with the boat. Our whole boat ride was full of dolphins amazing experience.
