"Excellent "

July 22, 2020 - 

My entire family enjoyed the cruise. We saw a mother dolphin and her baby almost as soon as we went out and they swam with us for quite a while. The boat was clean and the staff were friendly. Highly recommend.

"We saw many dolphins"

July 21, 2020 - 

My grandchildren loved the experience. One just loved the Captain , he played with him through the window with his dinosaurs while riding

"Super Fun!"

July 18, 2020 - 

We learned a lot about the area and saw two pods of dolphins. Awesome videos/pictures of them beside the boat and jumping out of the water. Would do this again!


July 15, 2020 - 

My family had a great time and was excited to see the dolphins, we definitely will be back??

"Fun experience out on the water and got to see some pods of dolphins"

"Dolphin Cruise"

July 6, 2020 - 

The cruise was really nice, the captain gave great historical facts on the area. We traveled for a while before we saw any dolphins, but in the end we saw a small family and it was very entertaining. Overall great experience


July 3, 2020 - 

Fun for the kids and reasonably priced. The crew and captain were very friendly and knowledgeable.

"The best dolphin tour I've ever been on! "

June 30, 2020 - 

This tour was so much fun. The staff were very knowledgeable and professional. It did not disappoint. Thank you!!

"Long & Boring But Did See Dolphins"

June 28, 2020 - 

Considering it was $20 it probably isn’t the worst excursion to go on but it is mostly uneventful. We saw from a distance some dolphins after about an hour of slowly puttering out toward the Gulf of Mexico. Lots of curious kids want to move around the boat so be prepared for them as well. Pretty crowded too so if you are worried about Covid 19 stay away for the time being.

"Very nice"

June 16, 2020 - 

I thought it was really nice...but during these unprecedented times, they dis not support social distancing.

"Very nice time. "

June 13, 2020 - 

The captain and crew were friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The boat was very nice with plenty of space and Seating both indoor and outdoor, would have been a 5 star rating if we would have seen more dolphins, but I know that’s not their fault, it’s just nature. A nice way to spend a few hours on the water.

"Amazing experience"

June 3, 2020 - 

Captain was awesome, funny, and helpful. The crew were a delight to interact with. They helped us find so many dolphins and the two hour ride was incredible. I want to do it again!!!

"Dolphin cruise "

June 2, 2020 - 

Was a little disappointed. Long ride that was all about the real estate on homes and condos. We wanted a dolphin cruise. Only saw two. Not worth the money.


May 26, 2020 - 

Fun crew. Nice ride!

"Overall ok experience"

May 25, 2020 - 

There was not a very good selection of food in the food that was offered was not that great but that's okay because I was there to see dolphins and not to eat also they ran out of food very fast. the overall cleanliness of the ship was okay sticky soda all over etc the captain was very kind and funny

Great outing. Enjoyed the cruse around the bay with the information from the captain

"Fun and Informative "

August 22, 2019 - 

Larger group experience. The boat has plenty of seating on the open lower deck and on the air conditioned upper deck. There is a cash bar with food and drinks for all ages. The captain is informative and funny. You are guaranteed to see dolphins. We saw at least 4 pods. They swam right beside our boat and even "surfed the wake". Would go again! My family of 4 loved it!

Glad we decided to take our grandson and children on the dolphin excursion. Five-year-old grandson was very impressed with the dolphins as well as my husband and I. The staff was very friendly even came up to the front of the boat and spoke to all of us. I recommend anyone to go on this trip.

Lots of room! Lots of choices where to sit/stand. Very knowledgeable crew and captain . The captain had informative information about the dolphins and a very good sense of humor.
