Crew was very friendly. we've seen lots of dolphins. It was a great experience.

Pirates were friendly

I was asked when I called to make reservations if I had already purchased tickets. Since I already had tickets I couldn't get the date or time I wanted yet every time slot was open if I was to purchase tickets through them. The ship basically sat in the bay, adult humor kids didn't understand

It was absolutely beautiful and fun. The people that worked there were great with the kids and showed them sharks and other great stuff. It was a total blast!

Years ago, we experienced a deep sea fishing trip where we caught lots of blue fish... big ones... Here, very few fish were caught that were actually going to be eaten. That was a tad sad! I'd like them to offer another trip where we'd really catch big fish and they could charge to filet. them. That would be awesome. I 'd pay more for it as well.

Very informative staff

We have been on the three hour cruise, and the dinner cruise and liked them both. We have not been lucky enough to see a whale, but the dolphins are great. This trip we took our 11 and 4 year old grandchildren on the 2 hour dophin and whale watching cruise. We thought the three hours cruise would be to long for the 4 year old. Both kids loved it. The four year old is still talking about the dolphins. The 11 year old liked the dolphins, but he really enjoyed the hands on tank. Great way to teach the kids about marine life.

Very family friendly.
