Overall the trip was okay. I've taken this same eco tour maybe 6 or 7 times over the last several years with Breakaway Cruises. This was probably the worst of all my past experiences. Before the launch the crew was yelling at each other about the net. The desk lady who gives you your red boarding pass was very short to the point and curt. It just seems like people whose job it is to prepare you for vacation sight seeing tours would be a bit more friendly and conversational. I will say that that the boat crew was friendly. It was a very disappointing trip though because the eco tour was a bit of a bust. Only a few creatures were pulled in, and one of them the lady didn't know what it was. We only saw 3 or 4 dolphins, which isn't the crews fault, I suppose. Like I said the experience was just okay, not horrible, not great.

We bought 15 tickets for $250.00 3 days before. We got to docks and they told me that they had just sold out the boat and their 2 ND captain didn't show so we couldn't go out until 6:30 that night. They did refund my money after I talked to manager and called booking agent.

The first impression was a disorganized S$&*-show. The cruise itself was great where we saw lots of dolphins. Kids being able to drive the boat was pretty cool as well.
