Relaxing, informative, and exciting, all at the same time. Our tour guide was personable, sightings were exciting, and the narrative was very informative. I would do this tour again and recommend it to others.

Was a really nice tour. Our captain had dolphins following the boat and also saw some nice birds. Perfect amount of time out there, esp with a 5 year old. My only suggestion is to use a microphone when speaking. We didn’t hear much, especially over the boat motor.

Captain Steve provided a wonderful experience! Shared his knowledge of nature and ecosystem. He really delivered when it came to dolphins - several surfed in the boat wake, later swimming along side the boat, and returning for a finale before heading to the dock.
