We had multiple young children with us and everyone had an enjoyable time. The captain was able to find a few dolphins for us to see. The boat ride itself was nice and the captain worked to make it smooth.

We had a good time on this cruise. A little less than an hour but worth the money. Victor did many tricks to get the dolphins jumping while providing us with local history and sites worth visiting. Would recommend highly.

Parking across the Pier 21 is $4 an hour. Fuddruckers will validate for one free hour if you park in parking across the street from the restaurant, and if you eat there, of course.
