Although we only saw a couple dolphins, captain Don tried his very best to find a pod. Wild animals are unpredictable so we knew it wasn't certain. He was engaging and very knowledgeable.

We had a wonderful time on the sunset cruise. The views were breathtaking as the sun set on the water, dolphin, various birds. Captain Don was a joy to be around, funny, informative, and very skilled at navigating the waterways. We would happily go back!

What is the weather like the first two weeks of October (average temps etc)?

Response from edistotrips | Property representative | Reviewed this property |
October is amazing with an avg. temps in the high 60's. But bring layers- from short sleeves to a good windbreaker for the fluctuations in temp.
