Whenever we visit a seaside location we always book a whale watching tour. This was our second tour with Adventure X and it surpassed the first of a year ago. The female captain actually recognized us from a year ago. The sea was bumpy the day we went out but that just added to the fun and, oh my, did... More

We just did our 2nd trip with Adventure X... and they were awesome once again. We had an all-female captain and crew- which my 12 year old daughter noticed and appreciated very much. We saw a bunch of whales and learned some great stuff along the way. I have already referred a friend going next week... if you are looking... More

Booked Adventure X for me, my wife and oiur 2 kids because it was a smaller boat, and boy did it pay off. The kids had so much fun riding over waves and getting splashed that even though our whale sightings were sparse, we all agreed to go back out immediately for a second trip! We had a blast both...

We swam with dolphins and we were swimming within 200 yards of two humpback whales. We had an awesome trip. The captain and crew were great. Most of all, our kids (three girls) LOVED it. Would do it again for sure. Highly recommend

This is a must do. The staff is great, especially Capt. and the rest of the crew who were very knowledgeable and fun. We had several sightings and saw 3 full breaches.

Crew was great and boat was fun. We were just not on the right day because it took us a while to find the dolphins. The ocean was a little rough and murky so snorkling was a little difficult but would not have missed it for the world. We saw a whale though!

We literally just finished the boat tour 30 mins. ago and it was an amazing experience for me and my boyfriend. We're both not very good swimmers as we're from the east coast but the pool noodles really helped us stay afloat as we ogle on sea creatures. We saw pods of spinner dolphins (swam right above them), green turtles,... More

Captain Casey and his able assistants (Captain Kelsey, and Lindsay) did a wonderful job. They drove us competently and safely on a very smooth pontoon boat (with toilet, although none of us needed it), to find - and swim with - a pod of wild dolphins. Their instructions were respectful to us, but very clear. Captain Casey is calm and... More

I had so much fun. We saw so many spinner dolphins and were able to see so many varieties of fish and the sea turtles were super cool. The first one came right up to us. It was a blast and I would do it again! Capt. Koka,Lindsey and Kelsey were the best. Thanks so much for a lifetime of... More

we could see the dolphins underwater, but better from the boat. We were instructed not to clap not our fins and splash, unfortunately, most other passengers do not listen to much they are to mount their Gopro in stress. Then it starts with the splashing and logically removed the dolphins. Too bad, you should tour therefore probably better to book... More
