    Weather was perfect. He was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and dolphin habits and routine. The ride was relaxing. As we toured the bay hunting for a sighting, he filled the time with conversation and music. On the trip back to Port, we got our sighting and followed for as long as we could see them before the drove off following the food.

    We had a great time! The tour guide was excellent and not to long or too short. I couldn't keep my camera on long enough to get the interesting information he shared! Then we went to lunch on Riverwalk after the tour.

    Seeing the dolphins and talking with the boat owner. Very interesting guy. Good port cruise. Owner explained what each ship did and stories about how they function.

    Lovely weather day. Only my family showed up for the tour. Maybe not as many dolphins as we would have liked to see but relaxing and good learning experience! Would go again!

    Southwest cancelled 2500 flights on 12/26 and this vendor will not return my calls to get my money back. We will not book them again. Trip Advisor also tried contacting them on 12/26 and no response. Excursion scheduled for 12/27. Had they refunded me I would have returned later.

    We saw the most amazing dolphin courtship behavior- showing off with leaps, playing with a stick and rolling and wrestling- so much fun! Mark was able to get us close while completely respecting the dolphins space. Fantastic trip!
