Keep in mind dolphins are wild animals and will not just appear because you paid to see them. Given that, we still did see plenty of dolphins. Whenever one would appear, the boat would stop or circle back to get a closer view or repeat...More

We also got the tickets through a Groupon offer, and, as the other reviewer said, I would have been upset if I had paid full price for this tour. They made sure we saw dolphins right off the bat (probably so they would not have...More
