Great boat trip. Saw lots of dolphins. Took out of town family and they really enjoyed it. Comfortable and knowledgeable captain. Only downside— The checking in part was hard with elderly relative —lots of steps to climb up and back down for no apparent purpose.

you do need a reservation, plus a way for them to contact you if the weather is not favorable for the tour. They are very careful about safety and will never take a tour out in dangerous conditions. You will enjoy it!
