    We did not see any dolphins during this experience because of weather, winds, etc. but we learned a lot about the area and about dolphins. I have kayaks but have never kayaked on the ocean so that was new and different. We were very thankful for such a knowledgeable guide whom we felt safe out on the water.

    We had a great time! Tour guides were fantastic. Got to see several dolphins! It was my hubby and mine 22nd wedding anniversary. Would totally recommend!

    The distance was way further than expected. I did get to see 3 and 4 dolphins swimming together but not up close. If going by boat is cheaper with same company why would they charge so much when you are doing all the work. No water provided.

    Beautiful morning on the bay, our tour guides were so nice and knowledgeable. We saw maybe 5-6 dolphins up close, it was so amazing! Absolutely worth it.

    This tour was amazing! Not only were we surrounded by dolphins, but we also had an amazing tour guide who had over 20 years Of experience with dolphin research. His knowledge of dolphins, the area, ecosystem, and military history make the tour even more special! This is definitely kid-friendly—my son had an amazing time! Huge thank you!

    This tour was amazing. We lucked out and there were only 2 other people on the tour. We saw so many dolphins as well as other wildlife. The guide Brantley was very knowledgeable and nice ! He also gave us great food recommendations and things to do while visiting. I would highly recommend.

    This was so much fun! Our guide, Brantley, was informative, professional and friendly. We saw several dolphins but also enjoyed other wildlife. If you get the chance, do this.
