It’s August so hot upstairs the bottom floor was nice with an abundance of fans. Y’all they encouraged the dolphins to breach!! Worth every penny! Could use a couple more shady spots upstairs guaranteed to see dolphins!

Beautiful weather and scenery, boat was clean and well serviced. Tour well worth the price. It’s about 1.5 hours, make sure you have plenty of sunblock though
Didn’t see a lot of dolphins 😳

It was a beautiful day for a tour! I felt the boat was way too crowded due to our current safe six feet distance apart. That was impossible to do. Unfortunately didn’t see a lot of dolphins 😳 The crew was very professional.

The tour was amazing. The commentary was entertaining and we saw dolphins. We also got to learn about celebrities while on on the water and whose house is whose! Definitely taking that tour again!!
