First of all, the crew was great and my comments below will be about the experience itself. After reading all the reviews my expectations were very high. I felt that the trip was just OK. At the end, most of the attractiveness comes from seeing dolphins and that is something the crew cannot control. We only saw 3 of them and mostly far away. The “shelling” part was not that exciting and this took close to 50% of the tour.

So much fun! Wish I could have done this more than once. The dolphins were beautiful. The caption and first mate were able to point out specific dolphins and their “names” and describe their behaviors (‘personalities’) that make them unique. Saw small sharks. The birds in the mangroves were beautiful. The shelling portion was a nice diversion and a rare chance to see a remote part of the area. Definitely do it!

The boat ride was a great way to get out on the water and see a bit more of the area and mangroves. My boys, ages 17 and 19, couldn't believe how much fun the had "shelling" and wondered why we had never done it before! Overall a fun time to have the family together and learn about the area.
