One hour and a half of pure joy, with many dolphins jumping behind and on the side of the boat, including babies. The captain is very knowledgeable and nice. We highly recommend the trip. Will go back when friends visit.

Captain Dulton was amazing! He was knowledgeable, funny, and knew just where to find the dolphins. We had non stop dolphin shows during our boat tour. It was an experience myself and my children will not forget! A MUST DO!

We had a absolutely fantastic trip today, lots of dolphins, all within the bay (if you’re lucky). Lots of fun with our guides, Dalton and Jackson. They have excellent knowledge about the area. Definitely recommend it.More

No. No whales. The boat doesn’t go out far enough for that. We saw lots of dolphins though!

Ordinarily, it is $24.95 for adults and $14.95 for kids. You can look up a Groupon and get it for much less. It's probably best to just call them to find details and check out the Groupon.
