Seeing all those dolphins having a great time in the blue waters.

I would have liked seeing a blue whale - but that is nature.

Awesome lunch!!

The staff was amazing.

It was an exceptional experience from beginning to end. You can tell the crew is knowledgeable and love what they do. The food was delicious. My only tip is take some motion sickness pills, even if you don't think you will need them.
