Capt. Justin knows his stuff:wildlife,ecology, marine and area info! Dolphins followed the boat’s wake, an osprey munching fish on a piling, a dog park on the beach. A great 90 minutes.

Google that name and go to their website and follow the trail for booking a cruise. That will lead you to the price and calendar for what days the cruises are available. They vary.

Does go year round. Snacks and water good idea. Sunscreen also. It was a great trip. The dolphin cruise is also a good deal.
