Captain Adam did a great job. Right off the bat we saw Dolphins. And quite a few of them. He was very knowledgeable about dolphins and the area where we were. He even threw in a few jokes. Great tour, very family friendly and affordable

We only saw a couple of dolphins but the tour guide was super nice and it was a nice boat ride that didn't cost a lot.

Parking across the Pier 21 is $4 an hour. Fuddruckers will validate for one free hour if you park in parking across the street from the restaurant, and if you eat there, of course.
