My husband & I had a great time. We saw about a dozen humpback whales - so close we could feel their splash. Crew was knowledgable and very helpful. Snorkeling with dolphins was an incredible experience. Must do!

Hi we are interested in booking four of us for my youngest daughters 30th birthday, she and I are certified scuba divers and her life dream is to swim with sharks but that will have to wait! Which booking is best for swimming with dolphins? What transportation do you recommend for us staying at Trump Tower? We can book the excursion on April 8, 9th or 10th. I noticed the moon is full April 10th, will there be any affect with the lunar cycle? Thanks!
