As a single mother having the crew walk around asking us if everything was ok that made my over all experience the best. Knowing that they were looking out for everyone in the boat made the experience extremely safe.

We had a great time, the staff was wonderful! My only suggestion is to offer a child free option. I would spend twice as much for the same experience if I didn’t have to listen to whining/ crying kids.

This was so fun! We saw so many dolphins, playing and jumping out of the water! We also were amazed at the creatures collected in the net pulled behind the boat. We didn't handle, though we could have, if we had wanted to. All in...More
