The boat ride

Aug 22, 2014 Tammy FL, United States

The captain was excellent and he got the dolphins to follow the boat.

Very fun!

Aug 18, 2014 Andrew FL, United States

I enjoyed everything about the tour! The staff was kind and I interacted with the guest.

This is a great activity for the whole family!

Aug 18, 2014 Kristy FL, United States

The staff was great and the boat ride was nice.

Unfortunately we didn't see as many dolphins as we thought. And the ones we did see we couldn't get very close as the water in that area was shallow. We also originally signed up for the Sunset Cruise but that was canceled due to not enough people and they let us take the dolphin cruise instead for no additional charge and even have us a free drink.

It was great to see the dolphins come so close to the boat. We saw dolphin within the first 15 mins of leaving the dock.

The business tries to sell you a wrist band for unlimited drinks. You are only on the ride for about 1hr and 45 mins. The wrist band is $12 and includes beer, wine and soft drinks. Depending on how much you drink this could be a good or bad purchase.
