Easy to find, with the ticket booth and boat close together. We had a great time, and saw a lot of dolphins! Captain was entertaining, and part of the boat is covered so we weren't in the sun. Good time!

Our group thoroughly enjoyed the tour under Capt Adam’s direction! We saw plenty of dolphins and were educated at the same time. Capt Adam was very informative and engaged the families and kids on the boat. We’ll use them again for sure!

Once you know what to look for, you see them everywhere! We went around 4 pm. They don't jump out of the water, it's more like a roll on top of the water. Our captain said to video capture and then later edit to get a... More

To my recollection, the boat was not handicapped accessible. You have to step down into it. But you may want to call the company. They have more than one boat.
