We went on the sunset boat tour for my birthday in July. The staff were really friendly and the price was very reasonable. We even saw some dolphins on the trip. They had live music and it was a very nice boat trip.

Had a wonderful time. Saw a lot of dolphins! They came right up to the boat. If you want to go on a fast boat this is not the one for you. Have plenty of time to look around & great drink specials!
