You can sit inside out of the wind and water, up front in the sun where you get sprayed, or up above in the sun and wind. The... More

The husband & wife that run this tour are knowledgeable and friendly. The day way we went out was very windy and rough so were not able to hear the captain's audio portion of the tour. We did see lots of dolphins which is why we went.

This was a great place. The tour is around 2 hrs. We got to see lots of dolphins, light tower and rigs. Pretty fun!

The facility and vessels were clean. The husband and wife staff were polite and knowledgeable. We saw plenty of dolphins and got a relaxing ride. The price was very reasonable and it was an overall great experience.

Went on sunset tour for our honeymoon. Had a good time. Saw tons of dolphins and learned a lot about the area and had a pirate battle. Will do it again.

We were asked to arrive 30 minutes before sailing time and because we weren't sure exactly how long it would take to get... More

Me and my family booked this tour to have a nice family boat ride and see the dolphins. The dolphins were amazing and plentiful. However, the captains spouse/ assistant was very rude.
