It was a very windy day but we still had a great time. Saw lots of dolphins and we even had some jump our boat wake. The captain did a great job navigating in the high winds.

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.
