Ample parking at the marina. Communication from Captain Mark left us without any questions. He was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. We saw dozens of dolphins - very close up. I highly recommend this 2 hour tour.

It was an amazing experience. We were a family of four and it was our first experience on the boat. Captain Mark was an excellent guide who made this tour a memorable excursion.

Everyone was so nice. They were knowledgeable about the marine life and were able to tell about why the manta rays where jumping up high in the air and doing belly flops.

Captain Mark was awesome!! We saw dolphins right away. He kept us all dry on a very windy day!! We can’t wait to return next year and head out again with him!

Captain Mark was very friendly and great with our grandkids aged 6 and 4. We saw lots of dolphins and other wildlife.
