Enjoyed! Fun crew.?
It was a great experience and a fun and awesome ride
Satisfied. In that we saw dolphins. Not "Very" Satisfied because we just motored around the same small area for the time at sea. was about 2 hours; 1.5 would have been enough.
The whole experience was awesome. You couldnt find a better captain and crew
My family and I truly enjoyed the tour. I would have given a 5 star rating, but the guide that was there had no record of our booking online, and I wasn't even notified that my trip was pushed back to a later time. So we had to figure out what to do for 3 hrs before the next tour began.
Crew was great, and the overall experience was fun. I was not a big fan of the whole catching the fish and other creatures in the net portion mostly because I didn't trust passengers on the boat that were handling the ray. I trusted the crew to handle the animals just not the other passengers. Other than that, we had a lot of fun.
Was fun and the crew filled the full two hours
The dolphin cruise was great along with a great captain. The young lady who gathered us for the cruise was very sweet and courteous. But, Our daughters were scheduled for the parasailing following the cruise, however, due to the wind it was postponed. The young lady said we would get a call back to fit them in.....the call NEVER came. The customer service/check-in (blonde) girl was rude with the girls when they would follow-up so we left. Again we were never called to reschedule or offered the jet ski's like the other young lady said they would do. On this point, very disappointed. The young lady who scheduled them on Saturday was extremely polite and helpful unlike what we had on Sunday.
Pros.....The boat experience is great, the staff is nice and very helpful and the price is very reasonable Cons... I was expecting to see more dolphin during the tour, not only 2 of them.
Enjoyed the cruise. Just would have liked to spend a little more time to watch and observe the dolphins. The eco-part of the cruise was a bit disappointing as only 2 sea creatures were all that was brought up. In all I would do it again just for the dolphins.
It was an overall great experience, the tour guides were very funny and we also got to hold some fish
The crew was amazing.
Awesome experience for the whole family!
The guide was amazing, very attentive and provided an enjoyable atmosphere! Thank you!
We had a blast!!
Reasonable rate, friendly staff, and entertaining.
