    The captain was 15 min late to pick up and was on his phone for much of the trip as a result we did not see a single dolphin.

    The host for the boat ride could not have been better. He helped us in and out of boat, he was informative, interesting, and humorous. Unfortunately, only one person sighted one dolphin for one second so I can''t give it a 5. He did say to come back anytime but since we are not from the area that is not likely.

    We traveled all the way from Minnesota with a 5 yr old, 3 yr old and 8 month old hoping to see a dolphin up close, but unfortunately did not. There were some miles away that you could barely tell what it is. Not worth the money we spent and in top of that, it was extremely hot and uncomfortable 1 1/5 hr ride I've ever experienced.

    The tour was a nice ride around the bay. It was a hot day and we only saw 1 dolphin. The Captain appeared knowledgable and answered questions.
