My family had such a good time! We saw lots of dolphins and our tour guide had a ton of dad jokes that really made every laugh and have a good experience. The kids also got to drive the boat at the end of the tour which highlighted the whole experience for my boys.

I was Cruise Chauffeur for family, so I took advantage of the down time to take this tour. The boat is very clean and stable. An enjoyable hour. Expect to get your feet wet. Of course the dolphins are pretty fast.

Boat was clean, the young men that were doing the tour were very entertaining. There are beverages offered for a small fee. And we did in fact see dolphins, as well as a sunken ship. The guides shared fun facts about the area and answers tourist questions like where things are, how to get to things, etc
