This is our 3rd trip with this company. We were not disappointed in seeing dolphins. Captain and his crew were awesome. Captain had something new; kiddos driving the boat...mini captains if you will. Kids loved it! We've never been disappointed on these sunset cruises.

You can go onto Hurlbert and buy discounted tickets-they do not offer discounts at the window. The office on base saves you maybe $6 a ticket.
