We had a wonderful time! Even with rainy weather, the crew made it a perfect experience! All three crew members were great, Adam was our favorite!

3 hours pure. With dolphins and a great trip to the capitan cook.

Was a great trip, very nice and helpful crew. The lunch was awesome, the trip was really hungry. The highlight was the dolphins, how much time they had to watch them, that was great.
