Highly recommend this dolphin cruise. Saw dozens, maybe over 100, dolphins. Captain and his mate very knowledgeable and friendly. The cruise is on smooth water and the scenery is beautiful, along with water view of Bodie Light House.

This tour was as promised - we saw multiple (and a baby!) dolphins fairly close to the boat. Captain and crew were great - had a good time and would definitely recommend to those who want to see dolphins in their natural habitat.
