This ride was worth paying. I loved this experience seeing the dolphins for the first time. Everything was amazing, and I think this ride deserves a good rating.

Checked this excursion out with my family. My 3 year old loved it. We saw several dolphins and they give kids an opportunity to drive the boat. The tour takes between an hour and a half to two hours and you’re guaranteed to see dolphins of you get a voucher for a free tour
