We had a great time. There were 9 of us. The skilled staff were patient and found dolphins and was interacting with them getting them to jump so we really got to see them. The kids and adults were amazed. There was no shaded area...More

At first I had my doubts about the company because I saw they had the cheapest rate around...usually cheap doesn't equate to great but this was clearly the exception to the rule, When vacationing with a group of 8, every activity can be really expensive...More

The boat we were on (one of two they run) had a bathroom. Don't know about the other boat.
