We all had a wonderful time. We were together a family of 5 enjoying a perfect 3 hours looking for birds, dolphins, and whales. We didn’t see whales but we saw the dolphins with their family especially the babies! We ate and drank, relaxed out in the sun and in the interior seating with windows. The crew were so helpful both educational and informative on our coming again and we definitely will!!!

My wife and I had a wonderful experience . The crew and captain provided a fun and informative tour. We spent three relaxing hours at sea and learned about the local ocean life. Can’t wait to return. Thank you for this wonderful time at sea.

The trip was wonderful.The Captain took the time to slow down the boat in order to see all the dolphins.The guide was very informative.The sunset was breath taking! This is a family owned business which made it even more special.
