We never did see any horses or dolphins, and it was difficult to hear the narration. Other than that it was very enjoyable, would go again in hopes to see the horses and dolphins!
Very helpful to my disabled mom get on the ship
We could not hear anything the captain was saying during the cruise. We were upstairs at the back. Enjoyed the ride and I was aware we might not see any dolphins or horses but it was disappointing to see only one horse. You have a very nice vessel but don't think I would go again as a trip with grandchildren.
It was impossible to hear the captain’s narrative from several locations on the boat. It rained, and the outdoor seating was too wet to sit on.
The tour should have been cancelled due to the rain storm. The boat was leaking on the 2nd floor and the speakers were so fuzzy, impairing explanations of the advertised sights. We left late, disregarding the statement that the boat departed on time. Most uncomfortable! I will advise friends to just walk- up to avoid weather discomfort.
We didn’t get to see any dolphins but realize that it was not your fault. Otherwise the tour was great and we all learned something from it. Maybe we will try again next year.
Was hoping to see horses and didn't expect the area to be so busy, but it was Memorial Day Weekend.
Not much water covered
Hardly any narration on this trip. Previous trips included history of the area and highlights of the notable people that have lived there. Also unless Duke took over the UNC marine extension he got it wrong. Enjoyed the cruise, but felt slighted on the narritive aspect of the tour compared to previous experiences with you folks.
We didn't see any horses for dolphins, but it was a beautiful day to be out on the water!
It was so pleasant to get out on the water and see places you can't see from the street. The captain was a very enjoyable tour guide.
The Sunset Cruise was everything it promised to be. They did not overpromise and under deliver. The Captain was outstanding and his crew as well. They were very welcoming and helpful. As the Captain narrated the many sites and historical landmarks, we able to see wild ponies, other beautiful sea vessels and the landscape. We didn't see dolphins, but nobody can guarantee that you will. The price was very reasonable and I was very pleased with the experience.
Love the boat and crew. the scenery was great and the additional narrative very informative. Loved talking to Captain Farmer. He is a real ambassador for your company.
Poor view of the horses and no dolphins or any mention of why they were not seen.
I wanted my this cruise to show my family, from off, and out of state, vacationing with me, about what we have to offer. All enjoyed it, but disappointed we saw no dolphins.
Enjoyed the points of interest, and the history of what we saw, (the islands, harbor, etc). Enjoyed the explanation of why some of the wild horses were "loners", and others were not. Enjoyed the pointing out and being given the names of the birds we saw, and if they were migrating or not. Enjoyed talking with the captain. This tour will help me plan future trips to this area. The only disappointment I had was, we didn't see any dolphins during the tour I took, but, I know the dolphins have their own schedules, and they don't share them with humans. I would recommend this tour to others.
There were no dolphins or horses but the ride was nice
The guide was very informative.
Tour was not fully narrated as advertised.
Good value. Knowledgeable crew.
Everything was great!
We had a great time on the boat. Sad we didn't see any horses or dolphins, but that happens. We will cruise with you guys again one day!
