We loved it and so did my kids 2 years old and 9 year old. It was a great family adventure. You do get a little wet but I liked that. The dolphins were beautiful and it was very educational also. I would love to go back.

Captain Dennis & Dalton were awesome. Very funny & knowledgeable. Saw dolphins right when we were leaving the dock & saw some out on the tour. Would have liked to see them jump the boat wake but they didn't. Very fun!!

A fun 1&1/2 hour. The Captain was knowledgeable about the area and he and his first mate had a great sense of humor. We saw dolphins going out into the bay and again as we headed back to the dock. There was even a precious baby dolphin jumping with it's mom in the boat wake. The boat left on time... More

We had a great experience and the dolphins really do like the wake and swin in it, surf it, and jump in it. Some nice info. was shared about the area and the captain was humorous. Suggest getting there early to get a seat at the back of the boat...yes, the back is where you will see the dolphins in... More

This day on the water was fabulous. We didn't know what to expect and had seen dolphins from afar, but this one is up close, if not personal... Loved it.

My husband and I thought this looked like a lot of fun... we live in MN and can't experience something like this at home! It exceeded our expectations! The captain and first mate were hilarious and made it even more fun!

We enjoyed the captain and his energy and enthusiasm for dolphins. The boat ride was really fun. The only drawback is if you don't get to sit in the very back of the boat and you are short like I am, you likely won't get to see the dolphins close-up enough. I saw just a little part of the dolphins... More
