Great cruise with lots to see and the ladies did a really informative commentary. If you don’t get to see a dolphin you get to go back another time free. Doesn’t get any better than that. Will go again.

Terrific service. Wonderful trip through the canals. Excellent commentary on board giving details of items of interest. Highly recommended. Unfortunately no dolphins, that is nature.

Had a great outing for my son’s 5th birthday on the Pirate Ship. Was attended by all ages and everyone had a great time.

Interesting tour - staff very friendly and go out of their way to track the dolphins. Good commentary

It was a great day on the water in the pirate ship, the grand kids really enjoyed it.
