Capt Ryan, Naturalist Jennifer, and Mixologist Alex agreed to take a small group out even though the weather was not at its best. Jen was wonderful with her descriptions and Ryan managed to find 2 different groups of dolphins that we could watch, in addition to the ones we spotted on our way out of port. It was a great trip to search for dolphins and other wildlife. Thanks so much!
Great commentary! We saw a manatee even though it was underwater. We were enjoying the dolphins and the homes we saw were beautiful!
Everything was great, the crew, the drinks, the weather and we saw so many dolphins. It was perfect! Thanks

Great trip and guide ,nice boat .However you should take manatee out of the cruse name .The chance of seeing a manatee are slim to none, and none left town .Have seen many dolphins but never a manatee ,was a little disappointed.
