Captain Dalton and crew were fun and informative. We saw three groups of playing dolphins. Other tours were following our wake to get a view. Definitely the boat to take!

Loved it! Capt Dalton and First Mate Mike are very enjoyable entertaining and knowledgable. Lots of dolphin sightings. At least 4 groups joined the boats wake. Well worth the time and money. Take cash for drinks and a well deserved tip for the crew.More

Ordinarily, it is $24.95 for adults and $14.95 for kids. You can look up a Groupon and get it for much less. It's probably best to just call them to find details and check out the Groupon.
