We did both the sailing cruise & the Dolphin Cruise-they know the bay dolphins by their names- the captain let the 3 kids with us sit with him and "drive". It was so relaxing- they work hard- and you enjoy the benefits! A MUST do for any family!

Someone recommended this tour to us saying how great it was & that they had done it twice. We called to get reservations as they run all year. We did the tour two days before Thanksgiving. We saw a dolphin not long after we left the dock. We stayed with that one for a while. We then went out to... More

We went as a group of 8 including 3 children and had a great time! The dolphins didn't want to play but the boat driver tried his best to entice them in a friendly manner. We stayed out a bit longer than anticipated and got to see the sun set. Couldn't beat this cruise for the price!

Our dolphin cruise was worth what we paid and more! Family of 4 with a 5 and 9 year old who all had fun. We even got some of the nature cruise so instead of a 1 1/2 hour tour, it ended up being about 2 1/2 hours. Stayed in the bay, but we were able to see a lot... More

We took the 2 hour sunset sail. We had a 4 and 6 y/o with us. The trip was wonderful. Got to see dolphins and a lot of them so it was a 2 for 1 kind of deal. The crew was great and very accommodating. They offered multiple times to take family pictures using our devices so it wasn't... More

My wife and I enjoyed the three hour tour very much. We saw plenty of dolphins and it was a very great night. We would do again in a heart beat. Starlin and Lisa Are great hosts and they took very good care of us. Very relaxing. We give it a 10.

It's a neat little boat ride but doesn't leave the bay and you may not see but less than a handful of the 40 or so dolphins that are native to the area and maybe some birds. It seems more interesting on the brochure. The captain is great though and knowledgeable. He spills fun facts throughout the ride and as... More
