We were blessed to see many dolphins. Crew was very friendly and my grand kids loved the refreshments! Love how the captain and crew always honor our servicemen and women! (We visited the sister ship the Buccaneer too!)

Nice cruise but no Dolphin sightings. The caption was very good explaining things as we went. It was good that they gave us rainchecks for another cruise!

I was worried with kids (6,2,1) but we were able to move around the boat and see dolphins! The cabin below was good in case kids got hot, but because we were on the ocean this was a non-issue.

We had so much fun! The staff was very friendly. My daughter loved sitting in the captain's chair at the end of the trip. Really helpful that one could purchase snacks and drinks on board.

Cost is $29.00 per Adult. We cruise year-round, but times will vary depending upon the time of year. We suggest calling for our cruise schedule a week in advance and you can also make reservations at that time!
