    This excursion was perfect for the cost. We did not see any whales but saw a lot of dolphins. Got some great pics of the sunset over the water as well as the full moon coming up. I learned some things about dolphins and the crew was very attentive.

    My husband, son and me had an amazing time on this cruise. Did we see dolphins - an estimated 500+ - in the distance, by the boat and everywhere. Did we see whales - one - but that is amazing in itself. Did we see a beautiful sunset - absolutely!! Had a great time - the crew
