This was the best tour I’ve ever taken for Dolphin watching I’ve taken, & that includes Alaska & the Caribbean. I saw more dolphins on this trip & paid the lowest price. The guides were informative & fun. I highly recommend this tour!

$10. Yes, $10. For a boat ride out to see dolphins jump out of the water right next to the boat. Best $10 I have spent in a while. Do it.
