A group of 18 went on the adult only cruise on April 13th and we had a blast! The crew was fun and kept us entertained. Definitely fun to get dressed up, pretend to be a pirate and have a great time with friends!

Fabulous time cruising tonight with Captain Teddie and surprise dolphin guests. I've never seen so many dolphins!! Such an incredible experience watching them swim alongside the boat, leap out of the water and play. An amazing night!!!
