It was a nice trip. We all enjoyed it. Even though we got to see some dolphins it was just a few around the first 30 minutes, after that it was just a boat ride. Nice commentary about the residents of the beach front properties.

This was an awesome experience! My husband and kids saw lots of sharks. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of where they would be. We also enjoyed the celebrity houses tour also. They had complementary water. And you could purchase beer, wine, alcoholic drinks, and soft drinks. I would highly recommend it!!

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and surrounding areas and kept it exciting and knew where the dolphins would be! He let us see them and take our time watching them before moving into other areas. If you want a guarantee to see dolphins and you want to see the beautiful clear water on a boat, this trio is definitely for you. So worth it! We got to see at least 7 pods of dolphins and a baby one and an albino one too swam right over to the boat! So so cool!
