Wear a mask people!!!!

Was a beautiful day, social distancing is rather impossible on the boat and certainly could of done without all the yelling as captain instructed when seeing the dolphins in this COVID infected time!!!! Did it but won't be back.... Sorry....

We absolutely loved it!! Saw several dolphins a manatee! The staff was great and our guide was very informative and answered all our questions. I highly recommend.
Nice but not exactly what I thought it would be

The crew was very friendly. One of the female crew members did all of the talking about what we were looking at as we had been traveling on the boat. She spoke very well, was professional and very knowledgeable. They all tried so hard for us to see dolphins. We did see some! However, don't blink because you will miss them. Not what I had thought it would be though. I little disappointed, but I get that you can't control animals in their own environment.

Cranky husband believes he should’ve been able to pet a dolphin for that price. Overall a nice hour tour and we saw some dolphins far off. Good drinks on board. 🍹
