Great trip! The staff was friendly and made sure we saw dolphins! We spotted a total of 11 and my grandsons were thrilled. I also appreciated the lesson in sea life that was given to the kids.

Opting for this one was a bit of a shot in the dark but it turned out to have been a great choice! There are 2 passenger decks, with a bar serving drinks (beer, wine, punch and soft drinks) and snacks on each deck. Friendly crew, great atmosphere, good music and we saw the dolphins! Recommended!
