We ended up having an amazing time on the dolphin cruise. I think we saw 20 or more dolphins including two new babies. They were very active and playful during our tour. We couldn’t have asked for any more. The crew was friendly and informative and fun and we’d come back anytime in the future :-) this was the highlight of our visit to Florida.

We saw a lot of dolphins, some sharks and maybe a few turtles/mana rays. The crew was very nice and accommodating. Our kids (8, 6 & 2) all enjoyed it! A highlight of our spring break!

Friendly crew, comfortable boat. Fun for our whole family, ages 4 -89. Lot's of dolphins. The harbor tour (even if it was a bit of an infomercial) was very helpful for planning other activities in the area! I would certainly recommend this tour!

we had the pleasure of participating on your cruise. We needed to make reservations two weeks in advance. Haley, who helped us, was fantastic during this whole process. Also, when we arrived the person at the front desk was very helpful and pleasant. The entire experience was fantastic. great people and great crew!

The Southern Star Dolphin Cruise was very enjoyable, although the waters were quite rough. A number of people became seasick, so if you are sensitive to choppy seas, please beware. I loved the trip, and we saw numerous dolphins. Regrettably, the ship was rather crowded due to spring break travelers, and I did not obtain any dolphin photos. The boat lacked good bathroom facilities, and the snack bar was rather limited. Overall, the excursion was pleasant, and I would recommend this outing for families and others visiting the area.
