This was amazing! So many dolphins, jumping and playing. They followed the bow of the boat. My family from India loved this cruise, and so did we ( we're locals). The captain, photographer, ticket girl- the whole crew were top notch. Thank you!!

My family looks forward to going on the Souther Star dolphin cruise every year that we vacation in this area during fall break! We have tried another boat in the past but find the Southern star family friendly and the best!

We had a lot of fun! Definitely recommend them! Took my 3 year old with me. Free refrills on coke products and captain was very engaged with crowed. Made sure we got to see dolphins.

Price don’t remember exactly but was $25 to $30 per adult. No we went in the end of July. Have taken this cruise twice now and haven’t been disappointed. Hope you have a great Time.

Pretty much YES!!! There are about 10 other dolphin cruises out there at the same time and usually whenever one spotted a pod we came into viewing range
