Traveler Tips

If possible go in late May, early June, becasue the mating season had all the animals out and about.
We had a cool day, but the sightseeing results were worth it.

Captain Jack and Xavier were the best. When we showed up there was a small issue with over booking the big boat but the crew took ownership of the issue and provided us our own tour on the smaller boat! Awesome experience and even better people!

Captain Sarah and guide Dawn were so friendly and personable, had lots of knowledge of the area and wildlife, and made the cruise so enjoyable!! We saw lots of dolphins cresting and even a couple jumping! I'd have no hesitation to recommend this to others and even go back myself!

Good family experience
Dana_B, Mar 2022
Seeing the dolphins & enjoying the boat ride were great. The tour guide was funny and engaging. My 8 year old son was grumpy that the boat wasn’t cooler or faster 🤷🏼‍♀️. I did feel like 90 minutes was a little short.
