We took the Original Sea Blaster (Capt. Larry) sunset cruise and had a great time. Only negative was waiting in line to board about 30 minutes in hot sun and heat. You can sit anywhere you want. We sat in the back and got a bit wet on occasion. Next trip, I would sit up in front of boat. Most people get up and walk around anyway, so no matter where you sit you will have a great time. Upon boarding, they take your picture and try to sell it to you when you return for $10. Free soft drinks, beer, and wine. They keep your glass filled at all times. Great music and sights around condos and beach area. Saw several dolphins during outing. Great sunset photo opportunity. Overall a great value for the money. (use $2 coupon in area book). As noted in another review, there is no roof on the boat. If you want to stay out of the sun, you might want to take one of the other cruises. From what I saw on the other cruises, the Sea Blaster is the most fun. All ages on board from young children to seniors. Everyone had a great time. As noted, there are two Sea Blasters....take the one with Captain Larry!

We booked this trip on the advice of a friend who had gone on the trip before. This was the most fun we had had all week, we laughed the whole time.
The staff takes a souvenir photo when you first get on & it is ready when you get back for $10 & they will make copies if your party wants more than one...for $10 each of course.
We took the Dolphin/Sunset cruise...we saw dolphins at several points in the trip.
Beer, wine & sodas were included and the guys kept you topped off on all your drinks.
At one point Captain Larry let the kids sit in the captains chair and "drive" while getting their picture taken...he even let me, because it was my birthday!!
Captain Larry also took you on a tour of the harbor and pointed out restaurants & what their specialty was.
I called before the trip to see if we would get wet and what to wear...I was told we would not...right!!! If you sit up front you WILL get wet!!!
Well worth the $25 a person!!!

We took the Saturday morning snorkeling and dolphin combination cruise. It was my wife and my two daughters, ages 11 and 5. It's a bit early, but we shook off the cobwebs and showed up at the dock as instructed at 8:15. Once we got on the boat, it was a short trip to the snorkeling area. This part was ok, but at the jetty, there really isn't a lot of extra special sea life to view. Although I did see a lot of small fish and one sting ray. We happened to go at a time when there were a few jelly fish around so that kind of hindered us a bit. The dolphin search went well. Our first try we found 2 just casually swimming along. We didn't get too close but it was exciting for our girls. We then took a fairly long ride along the coast. The great thing about this cruise is free water, soft drinks, beer and wine are included. The crew were great, and a lot of fun. After our trip along the coast, we went looking for more dolphins and found a pod of 4. Our captain knew exactly what to do and got the dolphins to play in the swell and wake of the boat. It was absolutely amazing. Highly recommended trip. Boat was comfortable, crew was great, and the experience was priceless.

For the price you pay the dolphin/snorkeling cruise was wonderful! The captain and his crew were very friendly and helpful. Always making sure you had a drink, which were complimentary, and they make sure everyone has a good time. They let all the small children drive the boat while one of the mates takes pictures with your camera of your child. They squirt random people on the boat which always makes the kiddos laugh. When you get ready to snorkel they are very helpful in making sure your gear fits right. I even saw them make a family that didn't know how to swim comfortable enough to get in the water. We saw several dolphins and enjoyed the ride.The ONLY ONLY complaint I have is that there isn't any shade available on this boar. I know when your on a boat you don't expect to be in the shade but for those that are older and younger who may need the shade don't have that option. It was a beautiful day but a little shade would've made this boat trip absolutely perfect! Not really a big deal but wanted to make sure people knew that.

Thank you for your review. We appreciate the feedback and are glad you had a great time on our cruise. Our newer Sea Blaster boat is laid out just a little differently and there is a little more shade up where the Captain and crew hang out now. But for general information, you are correct about the shade. Sometimes we are able to put up a large beach umbrella to help with elderly or very young. Thank you for your input.

We had so much fun on this boat...we did it twice! Love the crew, the drinks, the sun and the water guns.....! The crew....Seth, Brian and Ryan were great. We had our teen and a 6 yrd old. There were some jellyfish, but the guys showed us they were no threat. The free drinks are WONDERFUL. They keep 'em coming so kids AND PARENTS had a blast. MAKE SURE you go on THE ORIGINAL Seablaster with Capt Larry.
