Even though we live in the area, we had not tried this cruise until our son visited. We all enjoyed it a great deal and found it very interesting.

We thought we were taking a similar tour to one taken at the Outer Banks. Hands down this was so much better. Patrick took us around different shrimp boats looking for more and more dolphins. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. You won't be disappointed.

Most of this trip entails cruising the intercostal waterway looking at homes. Don't waste your money on this trip. You might get 10 minutes to look at dolphin within a 2 hours trip.

I don't know. As Jim R mentioned above, I'd call first and ask. The heads (restrooms) are down some stairs on the boat, so won't be easy for someone who is wheelchair-bound, though the crew will probably help. I wish that I... More
