Everyone was friendly and helpful. 2hrs was the perfect amount of time to see plenty of dolphins, search for shells and enjoy the boat ride.

We had a great time going out to the island. We found a few shells, got to take a boat ride on the Gulf, and saw dolphins and a manta ray. The crew was respectful and funny. They were as excited seeing the marine life as we were. Thanks for the nice trip. We are landlubbers and rarely get to be on the water. It was great!
