I think I am not gonna lie if I say that this was the tour of our lives. If you can only attend one program in this area it must be this tour. Believe me, you are not gonna regret it. We saw hundreds of dolphins within a few hours in their natural habitat. Sierra is very knowledgable, helpful and she knows where to find dolphins. Thank you for this amazing experience, I hope we can attend this tour in the future again!
