The crew is great. They are very informative and know the area well. They talked about everything - the other islands, the habitat, the tides, a little history, the neighborhoods from the water, fish, etc. Unfortunately, this was because we really didn’t see any dolphins. But that’s the way it goes. They also had a fun sense of humor. The boat ride was nice and being on the water is always enjoyable.

Our tour with Captain Sara and Dawn was absolutely incredible! They were so fun and entertaining the entire boat ride. We immediately saw dolphins once we left the dock and saw so many pods throughout the trip! It was a wonderful experience and we would definitely recommend coming to this location for your dolphin tour guide needs!

It was a lot of fun, the tour guide and the captain was very pleasant. The captain allowed some of the kids to steer the boat which was very cool, my son loved it. I was a little disappointed with how few dolphins we saw though and I felt like the pictures on the website are misleading, the dolphins appear very close to the boat and that was not the case. All in all it was a fun outing for the family.
