Had a lovely evening cruse to search for dolphins, which we saw and watch the Thursday night fireworks. Staff super friendly and helpful. Probably the most relaxing and enjoyable hours spent in a long time. Grandkids surprisingly were never bored.

As soon as you know your dates, we recommend you book your cruise early in your stay, in case of weather. That way you have some flexibility, if trips get cancelled.
