From beginning to end, this was an excellent choice!! The crew were wonderful! We learned so many new facts about dolphins. The only somewhat negative comment I could say was that the captain had a clear view of the sunset at one point but didn’t stop the boat until it was behind some trees. I love seeing the sun setting straight to the water. Other than that, we would highly recommend!! Especially for families!

This cruise was such a fun experience! We saw so many dolphins! It was a beautiful sunset cruise and the captain narrated the whole time so we learned a lot about the area, sea life and Dafuskie island! Would definitely do this again! Get there early to board the ship so you can get a seat in the very back or along the side so you have a better view of the dolphins. :)

Friendly staff. The captain gave interesting facts about the area and was very entertaining. We saw dolphins, beautiful scenery and a gorgeous sunset. However, I thought the boat would travel a little bit further down the coastline. Overall, I would recommend.
