We absolutely loved the cruise. Seeing dolphins in the wild were always on my husband and my personal bucket list. The best part is we got to share that with our kids on their birthday trip! The Captain and crew even sang happy birthday to them!

Sharing this experience with my family was awesome. We saw several dolphins. The captain was very kind to turn around and retrieve some of the peoples hats that have been blown off. The crew showed the children the different catches they had made that day and allowed the kids to feel the stingrays.

The captain did a great job explaining the island and his knowledge about dolphins. The two boys on the boat also did a presentation about an ecosystem. They catch and release ocean life. So we got to see a starfish, butterfly ray, blue crab, and a dogfish. Was really neat. We all loved it. Very educational and fun experience.
