Only saw one whale. Not anybody's fault just was what it was. Saw dolphins and seals so all was not lost.

My grandson really enjoyed going dolphin watching and it could have been great time except for the fact that we were cut so short. I would definately go back several times if they would offer comp tickets next time to make up for last time.

When I booked the reservation the agent should have warned us about the parking situation. Fortunately we headed down there way early or we would have missed the cruise because it was extremely difficult to figure out where to park and we had to park far away and walk. Also, parking was $40. They should have warned us about that because it changed the whole valeue of this outing. The boat came in from deep sea fishing and they had to scrub it down so we were told to come 30 minutes early and then we were and additional 45 minutes late leaving but we did didn't stay out extra 45 minutes to make up for it. Our cruise was just cut short and they did nothing to compensate us.
